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.

The Duke of Wellington while besieging the fort of Badajoz was told of an approaching French Amy of 23,000 troops under Marshal Nicholas Soult. The Duke of Wellington despatched General William Beresford with a force of 6,000 British troops and 24,000 Spanish troops who took up position overlooking the village of Albuera. The French attacked on the morning of the 16th May, Marshal Soult launched a feint attack on Beresfords left flank, while his main force attacked Beresfords right flank. The Spanish troops were overwhelmed by French musketry and a cavalry charge, at this point the British second division were brought from the other flank to stop the attack. It was here that the Middlesex regiment, 57th of Foot, lost a total of 423 men from their force of 575 and at this battle earned the nickname the Die-Hards. The allied forces were saved when the British and Portuguese reserves were brought forward and charged uphill against the French force. The French force were able to retire in good order but were unable to relieve the siege at Badajoz. This British victory had a heavy price as out of 6,000 troops only 1,500 were not wounded.
