Lady Elizabeth Butler

Elizabeth Thompson, later Lady Butler, was perhaps the leading painter of this genre of the late nineteenth century. Her famous quartet of paintings exhibited between 1874 and 1877 (Calling the Roll after and Engagement in the Crimea - Her Majesty the Queen; Quatre Bras - National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Balaclava - City of Manchester Art Gallery; and The Return from Inkerman - Ferens Art Gallery, Kingston upon Hull) established her reputation but her subsequent works never quite achieved the fame of these earlier pictures, in spite of such dramatic scenes as Scotland for Ever! (Leeds City Art Gallery) and The Defence of Rorkes Drift (Her Majesty the Queen) She continued to exhibit at the Royal Academy until 1920 but with few exceptions, all her pictures had military themes particularly soldiers in battle. While she never witnessed actual warfare, although she was in Egypt for some years in the 1880s with her husband, Lieut. Gen. Sir William Butler, many of her pictures were drawn accurately using models in some cases, or observing soldiers on maneuvers or practicing charges at Aldershot. For instance, when Queen Victoria commissioned the artist to depict the defense of Rorkes Drift, Elizabeth Butler went down to Gosport where the 24th Regiment was billeted upon its return from Natal, and made sketches from life. The soldiers even re-enacted the battle in their original uniforms worn throughout the campaign.

Sgt Dowling and L Cpl Evans with the 16th/5th The Queens Royal Lancers.  16th/5th The Queen's Royal Lancers provided the reconnaissance for the 1st (UK) Armoured Division.  On 25th February 1991, the regiment led the advance from Saudi Arabia, through the Iraqi defence line and into Iraq.  The next day, they were attacking the enemy in the area code-named Objective LEAD.  Each squadron of the Regiment had a small tracked logistical element mounted in M548 load carriers crewed by personnel of the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers.  On 26th February, two of these M548s, belonging to C Squadron, were being led by the Squadron Sergeant-Major in his Ferret scout car when an enemy T59 tank appeared and chased them.  One vehicle broke down during the pursuit.  Fortunately, the T59 lost them in the sandstorm, and the other M548 stopped and was able to take off the crew.  As the visibility improved, the tank saw and destroyed the abandoned M548 and gave chase to the remaining one.  Lance Corporal F C Evans was firing his General Purpose Machine Gun (GPMG) from the roof, while Sergeant M J Dowling, leaning out of the cab, bravely tried to distract the tank's aim by firing his rifle at it.  Both men were killed by the tank's machine gun fire.  Sergeant Dowling was posthumously awarded the Military Medal.  This painting was commissioned by the Warrant Officers and Sergeants Mess of 16th/5th The Queen's Royal Lancers, and presented to the Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers.
