This Week's Half Price Art

 The Battle at Rorke's Drift, also known as the Defence of Rorke's Drift, was an action in the Anglo-Zulu War.  The defence of the mission station of Rorke's Drift, under the command of Lieutenant John Chard of the Royal Engineers, immediately followed the British Army's defeat at the Battle of Isandlwana on 22nd January 1879, and continued into the following day, 23rd January.  150 British and colonial troops successfully defended the garrison against an intense assault by approximately 2000 Zulu warriors.  The intense and noisy Zulu attacks on Rorke's Drift came very close to defeating the tiny garrison, but were ultimately repelled by blasts of Martini-Henry rifle fire-and some smart bayonet work-with  some guts behind the bayonet thrusts!  Eleven Victoria Crosses were awarded to the defenders, along with a number of other decorations and honours.  Of particular note in the painting is the dog 'Pip' - he survived Isandlwhana by retreating along the fugitive's trail to Rorke's Drift.  During the Zulu attacks on Rorke's drift, Pip did his part in the defence - by jumping on the mealie bag parapets and barking at Zulus- who were hiding in the long grass and sneaking up to the defences, then biting any Zulu who came within range.  Unfortunately Pip was not officially recognised for his part in the action.  He was not awarded a VC, on the basis that he was a volunteer canine that accompanied an officer, rather than a War Office issued canine.  Conversely, if Pip had been killed, then he would not have been officially listed as a casualty, as he accompanied the army in a strictly private capacity.  British army horses were in a different category as they were War Office issue, therefore the loss of a horse in action, or to disease, carried a financial liability for the War Office.

During the static phase of the Korean War, tanks were emplaced in hull-down positions among the entrenched infantry companies on commanding hilltops, from where the accurate, direct fire of their 20-pounder guns dominated the surrounding terrain. They were also armed with co-axial Besa machine-guns. The tanks were protected from shellfire by sandbags and earth-filled ammunition containers. Along with the crew's 'hutchie', ammunition bunkers were dug in beside the tanks.  By night, both sides patrolled aggressively in no-man's-land up to the opposing lines. Massed enemy infantry attacks occurred at night, and the supporting fire of tanks was an important adjunct to Divisional artillery. In May 1953 the Chinese mounted a fierce attack against the position known as the Hook. Throughout the action, the Centurions engaged the enemy and inflicted heavy losses.  In the eerie light of parachute flares, soldiers of 1st Battalion the Duke of Wellington's Regiment manned the trenches. The tanks themselves suffered on average five direct hits each from shells and mortars, without loss.  Over the gun barrel of the Centurion Mk 3 tank is an American searchlight, used to illuminate enemy patrols in no-man's-land at night. Several Centurions in Korea supplemented their firepower with .50cal. M2HB Browning machine-guns, obtained from the Americans or Canadians, on an 'ad hoc' mounting. On the rear hull is hung a spare road-wheel, and the Royal Armoured Corps flash is shown, with the unit serial '41' superimposed.
