Great Victory of Our Forces at the Battle of the Yellow Sea--Third Illustration (Kôkai ni okeru wagagun no daishô, dai san zu). Seamen aboard a splintering warship still valiantly reload their cannon to keep up the attack on the enemy. One man has a bandaged head, and other sits long enough to bandage his arm himself. All around the sea and sky are filled with explosions, but the crew seems focused and determined, especially the commanding officer.
