WOODVILLE, Richard Caton Born London 1856; died there 1927. Woodville was the most prolific battle artist of the nineteenth and early twentieth century in Britain, producing countless oil paintings and drawings, many for the Illustrated London News. As was the case with several history painters of the Victorian period, he studied at Dusseldorf sometime with Wilhelm Camphausen, the great German military painter, and later in Paris. He experienced was first-hand in Albania and Montenegro towards the end of the Russo-Turkish War in 1877, and later in Egypt during the war of 1882. During the latter conflict, he made numerous sketches and obtained photographs of the trenches at Tel-e-Kebir for his friend, the French military artist, Alphonse de Neuville (q.v.) who had been commissioned to paint a scene of the battle. The fruits of both their labours were shown at the Fine Art Society in 1883, Woodville, exhibiting The Moonlight Charge at Kassassin. In 1884, Woodville exhibited by Royal Command, another picture relating to the Egyptian War. The Guards at Tel-e-Kebir (Royal Collection). His first Royal Academy picture exhibited in 1879, was entitled Before Leuthen, Dec. 3rd, 1757. Thereafter, he was a frequent exhibitor at Burlington House, showing no less than 21 battle pictures, many dealing with contemporary events such as the Second Afghan War, Candahar (Private collection) and Maiwand; saving the Guns (Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool), the Zulu War - Prince Louis Napoleon in Zululand, and the Boer War - Lindley; Whitsunday 1900 (Oxfordshire Light Infantry Association), and Dawn of Majuba (Canadian Military Institute). He painted many historical recreations both in oil and water-colour including a series on famous British battles for the Illustrated London News. He depicted The Charge of the Light Brigade (Royal Collection, Madrid) and The Charge of the 21st Lancers at Omdurman (Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool), Blenheim, Badajos and several Waterloo pictures. During the Great War, he turned his talents to depicting the current events, three of which were exhibited at the Royal Academy. The 2nd Batt. Manchester Regiment taking six guns at dawn near St. Quentin (The Rings Regiment), Entry of the 5th Lancers into Mons (16th/5th Royal Lancers), and Halloween, 1914: Stand of the London Scottish on Messines Ridge (London Scottish Museum Trust) exhibited in the year of his death. During his life, he was the most popular artist of the genre and he was the subject of several articles in magazines and journals. He himself wrote some memoirs in 1914 entitled Random Recollections. He was deeply interested in the army and joined the Royal Berkshire Yeomanry Cavalry in 1879, staying with them until 1914 when he joined the National Reserve as a Captain.

16 July 1760: This regiment of light cavalry, mounted on light, active horses, was raised in 1759 in the London area. It went to join the British Army in Germany in 1760, and a few weeks later in its first action it won high distinction and suffered very heavy loss.  With Hanoverian and Hessian troops, the newly arrived British light cavalry attacked a French force of five battalions and a regiment of hussars near the village of Emsdorf, in Hesse. In hot weather, and struggling to manhandle their artillery, the French infantry withdrew through woods towards Langenstein, where they rallied. Emerging from the trees into an open plain they were immediately charged by the 15th Light Dragoons. Three times the regiment charged the enemy, who outnumbered them five to one. A complete battalion was captured, along with six guns and numerous colours.  The light dragoons wore distinctive caps, light jockey boots and were armed with carbine, bayonet, pistol and sword. The drummers wore heavily laced green coats with hanging sleeves, and their drums bore the arms of the their Colonel. The enemy consisted of five battalions of two German regiments in the French army, the Infantry-Regiment Royal Baviere and the Infantry-Regiment Anhalt. German troops wore blue coats, with different facing colours, (in this case, black and straw colour respectively).
