Brangwyn had Welsh parents and his work was much appreciated in Wales. This painting is one of several war scenes from the rejected first scheme for the Royal Gallery in Westminister Palace. These decorations were commissioned by Lord Iveagh as a memorial to peers and their relatives killed in the First World War. In 1927-33 the artist painted a second scheme illustrating the British Empire which was also rejected and subsequently installed in the Brangwyn Hall, a Swansea Guildhall.
