Assault on Iraqi Artillery Positions, 3rd Fusiliers Battle Group by David Rowlands. (GS)


Assault on Iraqi Artillery Positions, 3rd Fusiliers Battle Group by David Rowlands. (GS)

Objective Steel, 26th February 1991. Just before the start of the ground offensive, the artist was invited by 3rd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers to join them in the desert, and jumped at the opportunity. After various adventures with other units in trying to reach their location in the flat, featureless terrain, I was attached to the crew of a Warrior Armoured Fighting Vehicle of C Company, Callsign Zero Charlie, commanded by Captain Bob Keating. The Battlegroup made a wide sweep around the enemy and attacked them unexpectedly from the west. The area codenamed Objective STEEL consisted of dugouts, trenches and artillery pieces. In this painting, soldiers are dismounting from Warriors with fixed bayonets to capture Iraqi artillery, which was uselessly pointing to the South. The green pennant flying from an antenna denotes C Company. The black desert rat painted on the rear stowage bin was the badge of 4th Armoured Brigade. The battlegroup halted around the final Iraqi gun positions on STEEL at 1445 hours, and about 800 prisoners in all were taken. I was able to take some photographs of the enemy's 155 mm guns here. The ground was littered with MLRS bomblets. At 1502 hours, nine British soldiers were killed and 12 seriously injured as a result of a tragic mistake by US Air Force pilots, who engaged and destroyed two of the Warriors of C Company. David Rowlands was asked to depict these two vehicles, call signs Two Two and Two Three, in this painting.

 Objective Brass, 26th February 1991.  At the forefront of the Fusiliers Battle Group throughout the land war was the Recce Platoon.  Once in the desert, it became part of the Reconnaissance Group which was formed to provide a force with an integral anti-tank capability.  Such a unit was able to act independently and defend itself, should the need arise.  The Recce Group was commanded by Major Corin Pearce.  4th Armoured Brigade attacked the enemy formations sequentially, and as the Battle Group paused on Objective COPPER SOUTH, the Reconnaissance Group moved forward to screen the formation and establish the Forming Up Position (FUP) for the forthcoming attack on Objective BRASS.  Corporal Derek McManus of The Queen's Own Highlanders in his CVR(T) Scimitar (callsign Two Three Alpha) encountered an Iraqi command bunker, and ordered an Iraqi to tell those inside to surrender.  The occupants refused, so McManus threw an L2A2 grenade into the doorway of the bunker.  With Corporal Dave Weaver, from his MCT(S) Spartan (callsign Four One Bravo), he moved forward on foot but came under fire from the Iraqi in a trench.  The Scimitar's 30mm Rarden cannon fired a sabot round and Corporal McManus fired his CLAW rifle grenade, but the fire from the trench continued so both he and Weaver rushed back to their vehicles.  With considerable presence of mind, Fusilier Anthony Cassar, the driver of callsign Four One Bravo, stood up in his hatch and fired his rifle, shooting the Iraqi soldier dead.  Captain Guy Briselden, the Milan Platoon Commander, led his men (almost all of whom were Queen's Own Highlanders) on foot to clear the enemy trench system, advancing by fire and movement.  He cleared several bunkers as he and the Highlanders moved through the extensive trench system, which the enemy had had many months to prepare, under the supporting fire of two Warriors.  Many Iraqis subsequently surrendered.  For his inspirational leadership in this exploit of arms Captain Briselden was awarded the Military Cross.

 As the sun slowly begins to rise this wintry morning over Thorpe Abbots, Norfolk, ground crew prepare B-17G The All American Girl in an almost surreal setting, for her 99th dangerous mission over enemy territory. On 10th January 1945, 19-year-old pilot, 1st Lt. John Dodrill and his crew went missing on a combat sortie to Cologne. Like many other crews, they made the ultimate sacrifice in the fight for freedom, with the Bloody Hundredth Bombardment Group playing its full part with courage and honour.

 Barely 300m above the distinctively meandering Piave River on 17th April 1918, an intense aerial battle took place between Sopwith Camels of 28 Sqn RFC and pilots of Flik 41J of the Austro-Hungarian Air Force near Arcade, north east of Venice.  The Commander of Flik 41J, Godwin von Brumowski, the Austro-Hungarian 'Ace of Aces', dueled with Lieutenant W C Hargrave, flying Camel B6342, a battle in which the distinctive red Albatros D.III (Oef) 153.45, emblazoned with its identifying skull motifs gained the upper hand, sending Lt Hargrave's machine to the ground to claim victory number 31. This 'kill' was shared that day with Oblt Friedrich Navratil, the first of his 10 victories, whose aircraft can be seen in the distance.
