Graham Bosworth

Graham was born in Coventry in 1944 in the heart of the motor industry and grew up with a passionate interest in the motor car and motor sport. He clearly remembers the sight and sound of C and D Type Jaguars being road-tested past his childhood home and has vivid memories of first visits to Silverstone in the mid fifties. After leaving school Graham trained as a Technical Illustrator at the Coventry College of Art then joined one of the city's leading illustration and design studios. He was engaged in all forms of line and airbrush exploded and cutaway drawings and worked on a varied number of contracts including motor cars and commercial vehicles, aircraft and machine tools. After nine years, he went into partnership and formed Baron-Bosworth Publications, an art and design studio. The studio secured contracts from all areas of industry including power generation, motor vehicles, machine tools, hydraulic equipment through to furniture, industrial compressors and boat building. Graham then worked as a freelance artist, illustrator and graphic designer and in recent years has concentrated on painting. He likes to work in both oils and water colour/gouache and pays much attention to technical detail in his paintings. His work has been exhibited at the Gibson Moore Gallery, Silverstone Classic, Goodwood Festival of Speed, the International Historic Motorsport Show at Stoneleigh, the Historic Car Art Gallery, the Coventry Transport Museum, the British Motor Industry Heritage Centre, Gaydon as well as many Guild of Motoring Artists exhibitions.

 Last stand of the 24th South Wales Borderers at Isandhlwana during the Zulu War. The battle of Isandhlwana, a Zulu victory over the British forces on 22nd January 1879 about 100km north of Durban. Lord Chelmsford led a column of forces to seek out the Zulu army camped at Isandhlwana, while patrols searched the district. After receiving a report, Chelmsford set forth at half strength, leaving six companies of the 24th Regiment, two guns, some Colonial Volunteers and a native contingent (in all about 1,800 troops) at the camp. Later that morning an advanced post warned of an approaching Zulu army. Shortly after this, thousands of Zulus were found hidden in a ravine by a mounted patrol but as the patrol set off to warn the camp, the Zulus followed. At the orders of the Camp Commander, troops spread out around the perimeter of the camp, but the Zulu army broke through their defences. The native contingent who fled during the attack were hunted down and killed. The remaining troops of the 24th Regiment, 534 soldiers and 21 officers, were killed where they fought. The Zulus left no one alive, taking no prisoners and leaving no wounded or missing. About 300 Africans and 50 Europeans escaped the attack. Consequently, the invasion of Zulu country was delayed while reinforcements arrived from Britain.

 When 250 well armed and trained rebel tribesmen attacked the small SAS outpost at Mirbat few would have given good odds on their survival. At the height of the battle Corporal Labalaba and Trooper Savesaki, both Fijians and both wounded fought off relentless assaults by the attacking Adoo. Firing a World War II vintage 25pdr field gun at point blank range Labalaba finally fell to a snipers bullet just as Captain Kealy and Trooper Tobin reached the gunpit to aid its defence. Within minutes however Tobin was dead, but Kealy and the remaining defenders critical position was saved by the timely arrival of 2 Omani Strikemaster jets, and helicopters carrying 24 men of G Squadron.

 Icy rain adds its misery to the bitter conflict on Drumossie Moor. In the shadow of the Black Isle, two English ships on the waters of the Moray Firth, await the outcome of the decisive battle. Pounded by Cumberlands gunners and raked by steady musketry, the Princes brave men can make no headway. Although the Irish and French regulars refuse to give ground, the Jacobite lines gradually disintegrate. Tired, cold and hungry men flea past Culloden House for the relative safety of Inverness. On the Scottish right the Argyll Militia, supported by Hawleys Dragoons, tear down the walls of the Culwiniac and Culchunaig enclosures in an outflanking attack. Avochies men offer some resistance but Major Gillies McBean stands alone on the breach. He cuts down more than a dozen Argylls, including Lord Robert Kerr, who lies mortally wounded, but his foes are too many. The hero eventually falls to a vicious cut to the forehead, his thigh bone is also broken. Despite the cries of a mounted officer to save that brave man, the major is ruthlessly bayonetted, his back against the wall. The victory is complete and nothing more can be done. In the distance, the Young Pretender is forced to abandon the field and Scotlands hope of claiming the British Throne.
