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.

Captain W Macleods Company, 1st Battalion Royal Artillery. Battle of Quebec 13th September 1759 was Wolfs final attempt to take the city. His army scaled the cliffs from Wolfes cove and fought the French army which was larger than Wolfes on the Plains of Abraham. During this battle General Wolfe was hit twice  and eventually mortally wounded when a bullet passed through his lungs. As he lay dying he heard someone shout They run - see how they run. Wolfe gave his last order to cut of the enemies retreat and his last words being Now God be praised. I will die in peace.

 Following an astonishing night march, the tanks of 1st Northamptonshire Yeomanry and men of 1st Battalion Black Watch found themselves ensconced in the village of St. Aignan de Cramesnil some 4 miles behind German lines.  Shortly after noon a small group of Tiger I tanks were spotted advancing north by 3 Troop, A Squadron.  Some minutes later Captain Boardman arrived in his Sherman I and when the enemy were within 800 yards he gave the order to open fire.  The first two shots by the troops Firefly brewed up the rearmost target.  After moving to a new position Trooper Joe Ekins fired again, knocking out a second Tiger.  Finally he turned his attention to the remaining tank, destroying it with two more rounds.  Unknown to the British tankmen at the time it is now believed that the last Tiger was that of the top German tank ace Hauptsturmfurher Michael Wittmann.

27th February 1991: After crossing the breach into Iraq, the logisticians carrying combat supplies drove for hour after hour to keep up with the battle groups, following tracks in the sand.  The relentless speed of the advance meant there was little time for sleep.  This painting shows 14-tonne Bedford trucks carrying ammunition (with an extra pallet of ammunition on the top); TTF bulk fuel tankers of 9 Squadron RCT; and DROPS vehicles carrying Rocket Pod Containers for the MLRS.  Flags were flown for extra identification purposes.  WO1 (RSM) Ian McLachlan and Lt Col Philip Chaganis RCT stand beside an Iraqi trench system.  They wear temperate camouflage pattern NBC suits, and helmets with desert pattern camouflage cover; 1958 pattern webbing and ammunition pouches, with respirator pouch at the right hip.  The RSM cradles his SLR while the CO has a Sub-Machine Gun (SMG).  A regimental pennant flies from the radio mast on the side of the FFR Land Rover.  The motorcyclist also wears an NBC suit, with an SMG slung round his neck.  10 Regiment was based at Bielefeld, Germany, and consisted of 9, 17 and 36 Sqns RCT.  The TTF bulk fuel tankers were their only right-hand drive vehicles.  The red desert rat of 7th Armoured Brigade was painted (within the black chevron) on the doors of vehicles.  The black sphinx was painted on the front of the lorries of 17 Squadron RCT.  10 Regiment did not have its full complement of trailers for their DROPS vehicles.  The under-slung loads carried by Chinook helicopters were mainly engine assemblies for Challenger tanks.

 Lance Corporal Mel Townsend, 22 SAS, in action in Dhofar, 6th January, 1975, for which he was awarded the DCM.  Mel Townsend, of the Royal Corps of Signals, was a member of a squadron of the 22nd SAS Regiment controlling Arab Irregulars in support of the Sultan of Oman's Armed Forces in Dhofar from September 1974 to January 1975.  He was the leader of a four man SAS liaison patrol attached to a company of the Sultan's Armed Forces in a battalion operation against guerrilla forces on 6th January 1975.  His company was demoralised after coming under heavy enemy fire and Mel noticed that very little fire was being returned.  He ran forward with two other men and began returning fire.  He then encouraged the Arab soldiers to fire their weapons and inspired them to do so by his personal example.  His initiative saved the day.  He was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal for his <i>inspiring example of the highest gallantry and military ability.</i>
