Information from the PCF Introduction to the Isles of Scilly Museum, by curator, Amanda Martin, p224: Hamilton 'moved to Tresco in 1961, where he painted firstly as a hobby, then full-time. He painted island scenes, the sea and traditional sailing ships, but gradually his interest turned to researching and recording the historical naval battles. His painting in the Museum depicts the 'Association', Sir Cloudesley Shovell's Flagship, which sank in 1707'.
