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.

Lament to the Lost by David Rowlands. (GL)

During the static phase of the Korean War, tanks were emplaced in hull-down positions among the entrenched infantry companies on commanding hilltops, from where the accurate, direct fire of their 20-pounder guns dominated the surrounding terrain. They were also armed with co-axial Besa machine-guns. The tanks were protected from shellfire by sandbags and earth-filled ammunition containers. Along with the crew's 'hutchie', ammunition bunkers were dug in beside the tanks.  By night, both sides patrolled aggressively in no-man's-land up to the opposing lines. Massed enemy infantry attacks occurred at night, and the supporting fire of tanks was an important adjunct to Divisional artillery. In May 1953 the Chinese mounted a fierce attack against the position known as the Hook. Throughout the action, the Centurions engaged the enemy and inflicted heavy losses.  In the eerie light of parachute flares, soldiers of 1st Battalion the Duke of Wellington's Regiment manned the trenches. The tanks themselves suffered on average five direct hits each from shells and mortars, without loss.  Over the gun barrel of the Centurion Mk 3 tank is an American searchlight, used to illuminate enemy patrols in no-man's-land at night. Several Centurions in Korea supplemented their firepower with .50cal. M2HB Browning machine-guns, obtained from the Americans or Canadians, on an 'ad hoc' mounting. On the rear hull is hung a spare road-wheel, and the Royal Armoured Corps flash is shown, with the unit serial '41' superimposed.

 Battle of Prestonpans. Bonnie Prince Charlie, after landing at Glenfinnan, in his bid to gain the British Throne. Lord George Murray with an army of 2,000 Jacobites marched southward where they were meet at Prestonpans by General Sir John Cope and a Royal army of 3,000 men On the 21st September. The Jacobites charged the government troops and routed them. hundreds of Government troops were killed or wounded and over 1,000 were captured. with the Jacobite losses less than 150. With this victory Charles Edward Stuart and the Jacobite army marched southwards into England capturing the towns of Carlisle, Penrith, Lancaster and Preston and getting as far as Nottingham before lack of supplies and new recruits forced him to heads back to Scotland. Through the early morning Autumn mist, Highlanders of the Appin Regiment abandon their plaids and rush headlong across fields of stubble into the stunned ranks of Jonny Copes army. The force sent by the Crown to destroy the rebellion and capture the Pretender is itself utterly routed in a matter of minutes. The first major engagement of the uprising is a swift and complete victory for the Princes men. Except for the garrisons of Edinburgh, Stirling, Fort William and Fort Augustus, Scotland is now under the control of the Jacobites.

Published in 1989 by Pompadour Gallery long since out of business, we have managed to acquire a small number of these superb prints which are hard to find.  This rare print has under the title of the print the poem : <br><br>I'm lonesome since I crossed the Hill,<br>And o'er the moor and valley<br>Such heavy thoughts my heart do fill,<br>Since parting with my Sally.<br>I seek no more the fine or gay,<br>For each does but remind me<br>How Swiftly pass'd the hours away<br>With the girl I left behind me.<br>Oh. ne'er shall I forget the night,<br>The stars were bright above me,<br>And gently lent their silv'ry light,<br>When first she vow'd to love me.<br>but now I'm, bound for Brighton camp,<br>kind heaven, then pray, guide me,<br>And send me safely back again<br>To the girl I left behind me.

 When 250 well armed and trained rebel tribesmen attacked the small SAS outpost at Mirbat few would have given good odds on their survival.  At the height of the battle Corporal Labalaba and Trooper Savesaki, both Fijians and both wounded fought off relentless assaults by the attacking Adoo.  Firing a World War II vintage 25pdr field gun at point blank range Labalaba finally fell to a snipers bullet just as Captain Kealy and Trooper Tobin reached the gunpit to aid its defence.  Within minutes however Tobin was dead, but Kealy and the remaining defenders critical position was saved by the timely arrival of 2 Omani Strikemaster jets, and helicopters carrying 24 men of G Squadron.
