The cover features an inset silver plated copper plaque by Frank Lutiger (1871 - 1941), a Swiss artist living in London who worked as a sculptor, medallist, metal carver and art metalworker. He exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1897 and 1931. The ship depicted on this plaque is unidentified, although it is a small warship with two guns visible. Lutiger was known for similar work for HMS Dreadnought, so it is likely that this is a Royal Navy ship.
