Mark Churms

Mark was born in Wales in 1967. He gained his degree in Architectural Studies at Oxford Polytechnic in 1989, but soon his interest in drawing buildings was surpassed by his love of painting horses and in 1991 he began work as a freelance artist. His first commissions were for sporting subjects, Polo, Racing and Hunting. However his consuming passion for military history, particularly of the Napoleonic era, quickly became his dominant theme, with the invaluable counsel of French military experts (accuracy in uniform and terrain of the various battles takes a great deal of time and consultation with many experts across Europe). Mark Churms joined Cranston Fine Arts in 1991 and for a period of 8 years, was commissioned for several series and special commissions. His series of the Zulu War, and of the Battle of Waterloo were the highlights during this period. Mark Churms' deep understanding and detailed knowledge of the period made Mark at that time one of the most prolific and successfull artists for Cranston Fine Arts. Cranston Fine Arts are proud with their series of superb art prints and original paintings painted by Mark Churms in this period. We now offer Mark Churms art prints in special 2 and 4 print packs with great discounts as well as a number of selected original paintings at upto half price.

1995: Three 105mm Light Guns are coming into action on the roadside.  Towed by an AFV 432, the far gun has arrived first and is almost ready to fire.  The middle gun arrived next, and the nearest gun last.  Red pennants mark the position where each gun is to take up its position.  Due to the hard road surface, they were simply laid on the ground.  The towing vehicle could be either an AFV 432 or a Steyr, seen with the middle gun.  They can be parked near the gun, and the driver could well be in his seat, as shown.  Not all the men of the detachment are needed in order to bring the gun into action.  The 432's engine could be running, and smoke is blowing upward from the exhaust pipe.  It takes some time for the engine to switch off, and needs to run down.  At the far end of the position is the Command Vehicle (CV), a 432 which arrived at the position first.  Arriving last, and coming to park at the far end of the position, is a DROPS vehicle carrying ammunition.  As each gun comes into action the muzzle cover is removed.  The two boxes which contain the sight and the gunner's quadrant are laid on the ground.  The prism is also on the ground, yet to be set up.  The director party is out of sight in this view.  On the gun, the base of the sighting mechanism is visible, but the sight itself is not yet fitted.  The buff-coloured pad is the gun-aimer's forehead protector.  Thick, white arctic socks (with a thin red stripe near the top) were issued, and can be seen on one man.  One individual (a Bombardier) always wore his sleeves rolled up.  Into the hollow end of the handspike the rammer has been inserted.  Its conical end can be seen.  In the background can be seen the ski-slope, built for the 1984 Olympic Winter Games.

By about 6pm the Zulu attacks had extended all around the front of the post, and fighting raged at hand-to-hand along the mealie-bag wall. Lieutenant Chard himself took up a position on the barricade, firing over the mealie-bags with a Martini-Henry, whilst Lieutenant Bromhead directed any spare men to plug the gaps in the line. The men in the yard and on the front wall were dangerously exposed to the fire of Zulu marksmen posted in the rocky terraces on Shiyane (Oskarsberg) hill behind the post. Several men were hit, including Acting Assistant Commissary Dalton, and Corporal Allen of the 14th. Surgeon Reynolds treated the wounded as best he could despite the fire. Once the veranda at the front of the hospital had been abandoned, the Zulus had mounted a determined attack on the building itself, setting fire to the thatched roof with spears tied with burning grass. The defenders were forced to evacuate the patients room by room, eventually passing them out through a small window into the open yard. Shortly after 6pm Chard decided that the Zulu pressure was too great, and ordered a withdrawal to a barricade of biscuit boxes which had been hastily erected across the yard, from the corner of the store-house to the front mealie-bag wall. In this small compound the garrison would fight for their lives throughout most of the coming night.
