At the start of World War II, Cundall worked for the War Artists' Advisory Committee and latterly as an Admiralty artist focusing on the work of the Merchant Navy: a timely subject that had been urged on the Admiralty by the Chamber of Shipping the previous Spring.
This watercolour relates to a painting in the National Maritime Museum, entitled 'On Board a Minesweeper'.
