Richard Simkin

Born on November 5th 1850 and was born in Herne Bay Kent, England, Richard Simkin grew up in Aldershot, Hampshire, marrying his wife, Harriet, in 1880, and it is also believed he was a volunteer in the Artist's Rifles. He was employed by the War Office to design recruiting posters. He is probabaly best know for his series of Army regiments including Yeomanry and Colonial regiments, a weekly supplement print to the Army and Navy Gazette. In 1901 he created a series of 'Types of the Indian Army' for the Gazette. He obtained much of the information from the Colonial and India Exhibition of 1886. Over a period of over 50 years Richard Simkin produced thousands of watercolours of Army uniforms and watercolours of Army life and campaigns. Many of these paintings can be seen in regimental museums and messes. Simkin also contributed illustrations to The Army and Navy gazzette, the Boy's Own Magazine, and The Graphic and many paintings were used in books and publications of Raphael Tuck and Sons. Richard Simkin died on the 25th June 1926 at home at 7 Cavensigh Street, Herne Bay. Many of richard Simkin's antique prints have been reproduced as prints by Cranston Fine Arts and are available from our websites, along with many original antique prints which are hard to find these days.

First Fusiliers Battlegroup leading 7th Armoured Brigade into Iraq.  21st march 2003  Operation Telic.  The motto of The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers means <i>Wherever the fates call</i>.  On 21st March 2003, just after midnight, Warriors of the Milan Anti-tank Platoon of the First Fusiliers, commanded by Captain Nader Anabtawi, drove through the gap made in the wire and halted at the foot of the berm marking the border between Kuwait and Iraq.  Soldiers dismounted from the Warriors and climbed to the top of the berm, where each pair of men set up their Milan firing post.  There were twelve Milan firing posts in all.  A platoon of Y Company, armed with machine guns and SA80 rifles was interspersed among them.  All the while, shells fired by the Royal Artillery were exploding in the air ahead of them.  As the Fusiliers fired at the enemy across the rugged farmland in front, a Combat Engineer Tractor of 39 Armoured Engineer Squadron dug a gap in the berm. Then, an AVLB was driven through and launched its No.10 bridge across the anti-tank ditch.  By now it was first light.  A Phoenix unmanned aerial vehicle was flying at the same height as the air bursts.  The enemy fire was suppressed, and Challenger 2 tanks of The Queen's Royal Lancers poured through the breach, then across the bridge and into Iraq.

Depicting Wellingtons withdrawal on 17th June 1815, the day before Waterloo, when the Prussian retreat to Wavre had left the British position dangerously exposed. There are a lot of similarities between this painting and Meissoniers Friedland 1807, but from a British perspective.

 Zulu Company of the First Fusiliers Battle Group in the attack on Bridge 4, Basra, on the evening of 22nd March 2003.  I travelled to this spot in Sgt Jason Wellard's Warrior, and sketched the soldiers as they took up position here.  Jason, the 12 platoon sergeant, carrying a 350 radio on his back, controls the fire support group.  He is kneeling with his SA80 rifle in hand, giving target indications to the soldier beside him who is firing illumination rounds from the 51mm mortar.  Beyond them the platoon commander, Lt Chris Rees-Gay (with radio pack) and three section commanders are planning the attack.  Firing its chain gun and flying the red and white pennant is 'Zero Bravo', the command Warrior of the Z Company commander, Major McSporran.  The four Warriors of 10 Platoon are crossing the bridge; the commanders of the two leading Warriors fire Schermuly flares to illuminate the ground in front of them.
