    Rather than cut and paste dozens of images into this thread, here is a link to the paintings of William Bradford - many of which are set in Arctic regions.

    “The Action Between His Majesties Ship Serapis, Commanded by Capt Pearson & The Bonhomme Richard Commanded by Paul Jones, Sept. 23, 1779” by William Elliott, US Naval Academy Museum Collection.
    This is early in the action, Serapis is bearing down on Bonhomme Richard. In the left background, astern of Serapis, is Alliance, which in this painting by a British officer, is seen doing more damage to the British ship than the American. To the right are apparently Pallas and Countess of Scarborough, and beyond them the Baltic convoy headed for safety.

    Hello, I am new to the forum. I collect ships on postage stamps and I am asking if anyone can identify the names of any of the sailing ships on these 5 stamps issued in 2012 by Jordan? Sorry about the size of the photos, but for some reason the website will only let me load a 12.5KB image. If I knew how to load a larger image I would.
    1. 50P stamp at top left shows a regatta or festival of tall ships.
    2. 20P stamp shows a sailing warship which appears to be firing 2 of her forward cannons to the right.
    3. 30P stamp shows a sailing ship in harbor, with 2 paddle steam tug boats, possible Portsmouth, England about 1850-1870.
    4. 40P stamp shows a sailing ship, possible a brigantine.
    5. 50P stamp at bottom right shows a steam warship, possibly a frigate of 24 guns, possibly flying a British flag.
    The Post Office of Jordan and the stamp printer will not supply any information about the names of these ships.
    I believe the illustrations were all obtained from the same source, so if one ship could be identified I could easily find the others.
    Can anyone help me to identify any of these ships, or names of the paintings, or names of the artists?
    Thanks!

    Hey, guys, I am in need of some information regarding tall ships, particularly 19th century merchant brigs. I will post a more detailed account in a new thread.
