Robert Hillingford

Born London 1825. Died there in 1904. Hillingford was a very prolific artist of Historic genre pictures particularly scenes of battle. He was a Costume Realist and like many similar artists of the day such as Crofts, Woodville and Leutze, he studied in Dusseldorf returning to England in 1864, and exhibited his first picture at the Royal Academy two years later. Towards the end of his life he began to paint military scenes particularly events from the Napoleonic Wars, i.e. there are numerous paintings by him depicting incidents before, during and after the battle of Waterloo. Other themes popular with the artist were the battles of the Duke of Marlborough, Dettingen, and military events of the seventeenth century, but Hillingford did produce some contemporary paintings such as Sebastapol; the attack on the Redan exhibited in 1899 and his Royal Academy picture of 1901, South Africa 1901: the dawn of Peace in which Lord Kitchener on horseback holds up a peace proclamation surrounded by Boer Civilians. Hillingford paid close attention to accuracy in details of dress and had a collection of original uniforms. He was Vice President of the Kernoozers Club, the members of which were all collectors of objects d'art and militaria, but he achieved limited fame during his lifetime.

Richard the Lionhearts tactical skills and military training played a substantial role in the capture of Acre in 1191 by the Crusaders. But Richard the Lionheart was ruthless and after the capture of the city he marched 2,700 Muslim soldiers onto the road of Nazareth and in front of the Muslim army positions, had them executed one by one.  But Richard the Lionheart was up against a great leader in Saladin and the crusades did not always go his way.  After he negotiated the Treaty of Jaffa with Saladin and secured the granting of special rights of travel around Palestine and in Jerusalem for Christian pilgrims, Richard the Lionheart started his journey back to England in 1192.  He was shipwrecked, and captured by the German Emperor Henry VI, only being released after a 150,000 mark ransom was paid.  This money was raised by taxes in England.

In 1973 the 1st Battalion of the Queen's Lancashire Regiment was on its third emergency tour of duty in Northern Ireland.  West Belfast was covered in the squalid signs of violence.  The boarded-up and bombed-out shells of houses, the burned-out cars, the hate-inspired graffiti and the rusting barbed wire.  Evidence of the battalion would be seen in prowling armoured personnel carriers with swinging gun turrets, alert foot patrols moving from cover to cover, road blocks and barriers, and, within 200 yards of the city centre, Battalion Headquarters in Hastings Street, with its sandbagged and camouflaged sentry posts, and tall wire-netted anti-rocket screens.  Private Ken Cross and Sergeant Judd, of A Company, were in an Observation Post (OP) in the upstairs bedroom of a derelict terraced house near Leeson Street.  Privates Jackson and Noad were also in the house.  Suddenly, a blast bomb went off in the back yard, followed by high velocity fire from at least three different directions.  The ensuing gun battle lasted about fifteen minutes, and more than fifty rounds were returned at the gunmen, wounding one of them.  Ken Cross and Peter Noad explained the details to me.  They were unshaven, it being their second day in the OP.  In the upper room, Ken was at the aperture of the blocked-up window with his L 42 Sniper rifle.  A grey blanket (covering broken glass) and four large packs were on the floor, along with a camera fitted with a telephoto lens. Two of their sleeping bags were laid out ready for use. Sgt Judd, holding his SLR (he was left-handed) was operating his Pocketphone Radio.
