Jacqueline Stanhope

Jacqueline Stanhope was born in 1963 and was educated in Scotland. Facinated by horses and racing she began painting and drawing them at an early age by the young age of 10 she was using oils. She was gifted both academically as well as artistically, she began selling her work in secondary school. She left school at the age of 16 to follow her career in painting on a professional level, chosing this route over a career in medicine. She was facinated by anatomy and science more than art and started freelancing as a graphic and portrait artist. By age 21 she had undertaken work for Walt Disney and had painted football teams. Jacqueline took time out to raise a young family and then re-entered the art world by producing 'Northern Dancer & Sons' a limited edition print. This print led to a rise in her popularity with leaders in the racing world investing in her work. Her work is exhibited annually at Tattersalls December Sales which has also raised her profile with paintings being sold to clients worldwide.

 Last stand of the 24th South Wales Borderers at Isandhlwana during the Zulu War.  The battle of Isandhlwana, a Zulu victory over the British forces on 22nd January 1879 about 100km north of Durban.  Lord Chelmsford led a column of forces to seek out the Zulu army camped at Isandhlwana, while patrols searched the district.  After receiving a report, Chelmsford set forth at half strength, leaving six companies of the 24th Regiment, two guns, some Colonial Volunteers and a native contingent (in all about 1,800 troops) at the camp.  Later that morning an advanced post warned of an approaching Zulu army.  Shortly after this, thousands of Zulus were found hidden in a ravine by a mounted patrol but as the patrol set off to warn the camp, the Zulus followed.  At the orders of the Camp Commander, troops spread out around the perimeter of the camp, but the Zulu army broke through their defences.  The native contingent who fled during the attack were hunted down and killed.  The remaining troops of the 24th Regiment, 534 soldiers and 21 officers, were killed where they fought.  The Zulus left no one alive, taking no prisoners and leaving no wounded or missing.  About 300 Africans and 50 Europeans escaped the attack.  Consequently, the invasion of Zulu country was delayed while reinforcements arrived from Britain.

On a dark winter evening, the Permanent Vehicle Check Point (PVCP) north of Rosslea, close to the border with Monaghan, was manned by 8 soldiers commanded by Corporal Robert Duncan.  In response to a threat to the border locations an additional 4-man team commanded by Corporal Ian Harvey was on external patrol.  From the direction of the border a specially armour-plated lorry, with about twelve terrorists intent on destroying the base stopped, and as Private Houston checked the back of it, automatic gunfire opened up from Armalite and AK47 rifles.  Grenades were thrown into the base, and a flame-thrower was aimed at the command sangar.  Two RPG7 Rockets were fired at the observation sangar.  Heavy suppressive fire continued as the lorry reversed and smashed its way into the compound.  Two soldiers were killed.  The truck drove out of the devastated PVCP, and a red transit van drove in, laden with explosives.  Fortunately only the booster charge exploded.  As the patrol came up rapidly, firing at the terrorists, the truck drove off at speed, its two machine-guns mounted on the rear firing, its driver intent on escape.  It was found abandoned at the border with a 210 kg bomb on board.  The scale and type of this attack had never been seen before in Northern Ireland.  Every soldier involved acted with exemplary courage and the determination to defeat the enemy.  The conduct of Corporals Duncan and Harvey was in the highest traditions of conspicuous gallantry.  Each received the Distinguished Conduct Medal.  The events of the Derryard Action are a landmark in the modern fighting history of the King's Own Scottish Borderers.  I was phoned soon after the action.  I flew to Belfast and was driven to the location.  In order to paint the action it was important to see the PVCP in its scarred condition, before it was repaired.  The lonely, isolated building put me in mind of the beleaguered little forts which dotted this part of Ireland in the time of Queen Elizabeth I.  The soldiers took up the positions they had fought in, while I sketched them in their Tam-o'-shanters.  Corporal Ian Harvey is in the foreground with Pte Maxwell.  Cpl Robert Duncan kneels in the road.
