Catalogue entry

The military skiff here is the same as is seen on folios 12 recto and 13 recto (D11607, D11608), with its folded standard towards the bow. The boat seems precariously overloaded. For general notes on the series of unidentified subjects to which this sketch belongs see folio 2 recto (D11597).
