Chester by Paul Hart.


Chester by Paul Hart.

Racing at this pretty and ancient venue dates back as far as the mid 14th century, making it the oldest racecourse in Britain. Bounded by the River Dee and a Roman city wall, the Roodee is the tightest and smallest course of all. The oldest record of a race here is that for a prize of a silver bell woth 111 shillings on Shrove Tuesday in 1540, continuing until 1609. The completely flat track is only a shade longer than a mile and can cause problems for larger horses that often find it difficult to get into their stride. In longer races, the competitors pass the standds no less than three times covering nearly two miles and three furlongs. The most famous of the long races is The Chester Cup, first run in 1824, being the highlight of a three day meet in May.

The group three Chester Vase run over 1 mile 4 furlongs and 66 yardds was first run in 1907 and is regarded as a trial of stamina for Epsom Derby hopefuls. Winners of the Vase that went on to Derby success include Papyrus 1923, Hyperion 1933, Windsor Lad 1934, Henbit 1980 and the charismatic Shergar in 1981. Another major race in the Chester calendar is the Ormonde Stakes, named after the unbeaten Triple Crown winner of 1886. A favourite for four year olds, the Derby winner Teenoso won in 1984. The tight course offers little hope for runners that find themselves out of position at the final bend. With only a 230 yard run in to the line, a low draw for starters of sprint races is often decisive. The lovely Chester course is a favourite for many punters offering spectacular race views from almost all aspects.

The 50th Anniversary of the SAS 1947-1997. Depicting 21 SAS.  The Artists Rifles was raised in London in 1859 as a Volunteer regiment, and comprised professional painters, musicians, actors, architects and others involved in creative endeavours.  The unit's badge, designed by William Wyon, shows the heads of the Roman gods Mars and Minerva in profile.  It served in the Boer War and the 1st World War, when it suffered higher casualties than those of any other battalion, including 2,003 killed, 3,250 wounded, 533 missing and 286 prisoners of war.  Members of the regiment won eight Victoria Crosses, fifty-six Distinguished Service Orders and over a thousand other awards for gallantry.  During World War II it was an officer training unit, but was disbanded in 1945.  The Special Air Service (SAS) was formed in 1941 by David Stirling as a commando force operating behind enemy lines during the war in North Africa and Europe.  It was officially disbanded on 30th November 1946.  In 1947 the Artists Rifles was re-raised as the 21st Special Air Service Regiment (Artists Rifles).  21 SAS was active during the Malayan Emergency and in many subsequent conflicts.  In 1952, members of the Artists Rifles who had been involved in special operations in Malaya formed 22 SAS.  For much of the Cold War the role of 21 SAS was to provide stay-behind parties in the event of a Warsaw Pact invasion of western Europe.  This painting was commissioned to mark the first 50 years of the 21st Special Air Service Regiment (Artists Rifles).  The scene depicts a meeting, bridging time between SAS soldiers of 1947 and 1997 as they share a brew of tea. The theme is the constant truth that, though times change, the man, in most respects, stays the same.  21st SAS enjoys a long historical affiliation with the Royal Academy, and this painting was unveiled at a cocktail reception there on Friday 6th December 1996, to mark the unit's Golden Jubilee.
