This was a Polish ship which escaped the German invasion in 1939 and fought on the Allied side?
Nice shot, moody feeling, the colors are perhaps a bit pushed, but it works.. gives the ship a slightly toy-like look.

Yes, this the one of the three Polish destroyers which escaped the German invasion in 1939. Those ships was named "Blyskawica" (Lightning - build in 1938. In 1975 was changed to museum ship), "Grom" (Thunder - Blyskawica's twin build 1938. Sunk 1940 by German planes in Narvik), "Burza" (Storm - build in 1927, scrapped in 1975). All they fought on Allied side but Blyskawica is probably most famous.

Best Regards
Matt
