Richard Ansdell

Richard Ansdell was born in Liverpool, the son of Thomas Griffiths Ansdell, a freeman who worked at the Liverpool Dock, and Anne Jackson. His father died young and Richard went to the Bluecoat School for orphans. Richard had a natural talent for art from an early age, and after school went to Chatham Kent and became a portrait painter. In 1835 Richard Ansdell first exhibited at the Liverpool Academy. His animal and rural subjects proved to be popular and he soon attracted wealthy patrons and in 1840 Richard had his first exhibition at the Royal Academy in London. In June 1841, he married Maria Romer - and had 11 children. In 1847 the family left Liverpool to live in Kensingotn in London. In 1848 Richard Ansdell painted the magnificent Fight for the Standard (owned by the Royal Hoispital Chelsea). In 1855, Andsell was awarded a gold medal at the Paris Exhibitionwith the The Wolf Slayer and Taming the Drove. He also won the Heywood medal three times for his work at the Manchester Royal Institution. Richard Ansdell in 1861 was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy (ARA) and a Royal Academician (RA) in 1870. During part of his career he kept a summer house at Lytham St Annes, in the borough of Fylde, where a district, Ansdell, is named after him. He is the only English artist to have been honoured in this way. In April 1885 Richard Ansdell died at Collingwood Tower near Frimley, Surrey. He was buried at Brookwood Cemetery.

 Preussisch Stargard, East Prussia, February 1945.  Following the departure  of the platoon's two other vehicles, after expending all their ammunition, the single Jagdpanther of Oberfeldwebel Hermann Bix remained to cover the withdrawal of all supporting infantry in the area.  Hidden behind a muck heap, with only twenty armour piercing and five high explosive shells remaining he made the attacking Soviet Shermans pay a heavy price, destroying sixteen of their number before he too fell back out of ammunition.

At 0620 hours covered by a brief barrage from 1000 guns, the tanks of C and F Battalions in MkIV tanks advanced alongside the men of the British 12th Division against the impregnable German Hindenburg line at Cambrai.  Supported in the air by 4 RFC squadron flying ground attack missions, the general offensive had broken through 3 trench lines and penetrated 5 miles on a 6 mile front by lunchtime.  Although these gains were not exploited and later retaken by a German counter offensive, Cambrai showed the full potential of the tank on the battlefield.
