Second Lieutenant G. G. Coury Assisting Men Digging A Communication Trench Under Intense Fire.


Second Lieutenant G. G. Coury Assisting Men Digging A Communication Trench Under Intense Fire.

During an advance Second Lieutenant Gabriel George Coury, of the South Lancashire Regiment, was in command of two platoons, which had been ordered to dig a communication trench, and his fine example kept up the spirits of his men, who completed the task under intense fire. Later, after his battalion had suffered severe casualties and the commanding officer had been wounded, he went out in front of the advanced position in broad daylight and brought him back over ground swept by machine gun fire. He also assisted in rallying the attacking troops and in leading them forward. He has been awarded the V.C. for his most conspicuous bravery.

The painting shows Lieutenant T. Melville along with Lieutenant N J A Coghill attempting to Save the Queen's Colours of the 1/24th and fight their way out of the Battle of Isandhlwana.  Lieutenant Melville was the adjutant of the 1st Battalion, the 24th Foot.  Melville collected the Queen's Colours from the guard tent towards the end of the battle and rode out of camp heading for the Tugela River.  Melville arrived at the river, and due to the heavy rains the Tugela was in flood.  Melville rode into the river but about half way across came off his horse, still clutching the colours.  Lieutenant Coghill, also of the 24th Foot, crossed the river soon after and went to Melville's assistance.  The Zulus were on the bank and opened a heavy fire on them.  Lt Coghill's horse was killed and the colour swept away.  Both officers struggled to the Natal bank where it seems it is llikely that both men were killed by Natal natives.  The colours would later be recovered from the Tugela River.  Both officers would be later awarded the Victoria Cross.  The losses during the battle were 52 British officers and 806 non-commissioned ranks were killed and 471 Africans died fighting for the British.  Zulu warrior dead were around 2,000 dead either on the field or from wounds.  There were only around 60 Europeans survived the battle.

 Two days into Operation Desert Storm (G+2), and the allied VII Corps had wheeled through southern Iraq towards the Kuwait border. In the centre of the advance were the men and tanks of the US 3rd Armored Division and 2nd Cavalry Regiment supported by the 1st Infantry Division. The greatest glory though, went to the 2nd Cavalry Regiment, who after an initial encounter with 10 Iraqi T72 tanks all of which were destroyed near longitudinal line 60 (Easting 60), moved on until the bulk of the battle occurred at 73 Easting. Despite having to fight in almost zero visibility due to dust storms and nightfall, the regiments M2A2, M3A2 Bradleys, and M1A1 Abrams decimated the opposing elements of the Iraqi crack Tawakalna Republican Guard Division and 12th Armoured Division. Their success was followed up by the 1st Infantry Division who carried on the attack to take Objective Norfolk the following morning, and by the 3rd Armored Division to the north who engaged and destroyed other brigades of the Tawakalna and 12 Armoured Divisions.
