 The French army is in a route, and Napoleon is urged to leave the Battle Field, while the Old Guards  protect his carriage.
Evening of Waterloo by Ernest Crofts. (PC)
 North Africa, 18th November 1941.  Italian Autoblinda armoured cars of Gen. Gambara's XX Mobile Corps trade shots with forward reconnaissance elements of the British 22nd Armoured Brigade, during the initial hours of Operation Crusader.  Their quick withdrawal to report their contact would give the Italian main force a timely warning of the unexpected attack.

Enemy Ahead by David Pentland. (PC)
 The Fezzan, Libya, North Africa, November, 1942.  The Italian Reparto Celere 3 of the 'Raggruppamento Sahariano AS', was the first unit to be equipped with the unique Camionetta 42 'Sahariana'.  The platoon was used for patrols and had its first clashes with the LRDG on 17 November, when it lost one Sahariana, and on 25 November, when it succeeded in destroying four out of the eight enemy vehicles it encountered.

The Luftwaffe had done everything in its power to pummel London into submission but they failed. By the end of September 1940 their losses were mounting. For weeks since the early days of September, London had been the main target for the Luftwaffe and during that time Luftwaffe High Command had grown increasingly despondent as their losses steadily mounted. Far from being on the brink of collapse RAF Fighter Command, though vastly outnumbered, had shown an incredible resilience. The fighting had reached a dramatic climax on Sunday 15th September when, bloodied and bruised, the Luftwaffe had lost the upper hand on a day of intense combat that had culminated with a humiliating retreat. Almost every day that had passed since then had seen the Luftwaffe do everything in its power to pummel London and regain the initiative, but the daylight raids were becoming increasingly costly. On Friday 27th September, 80 days after the Battle of Britain had officially begun, the Luftwaffe came once more, this time concentrating on the fastest bombers they had - Ju88s and Bf110s. And they came in force, principally targeting London and Bristol. Anthony Saunders' superb painting depicts one of these raids, this time by bombers from KG77 as they head over the Medway Estuary, east of the City of London, in an attempt to attack the capital's warehouses and docks. Among the many units defending the capital that day was 92 Squadron from Biggin Hill and Anthony portrays the Spitfire of Pilot Officer Geoffrey Wellum in his dramatic piece. With a deft flick of the rudder Wellum banks his fighter away to port seconds after sharing in the destruction of a Ju88. It was just one of more than 50 German aircraft destroyed by the RAF during the day.
Decisive Blow by Anthony Saunders.
 Despite having sight in just one eye, Major Edward Mick Mannock was to become one of the most decorated and celebrated aces of World War 1, bringing down an official 61 enemy aircraft in just eighteen months before himself being brought down in flames by enemy ground fire. He was reluctant to add shared kills to his tally, so his actual total of victories is recorded at 73. His decorations include the VC, DSO and 2 Bars, MC and Bar and he is depicted here diving on enemy aircraft in SE5a D278 of 74 Sqn in April, 1918.

 Mystery still surrounds just why Manfred von Richthofen risked so much in chasing the novice pilot Wilfred Wop May into Allied-occupied territory on the morning of Sunday, 21st April 1918, but it was to be his last flight, this error of judgement costing him his life. Von Richthofen had broken from the main fight involving Sopwith Camels of 209 Sqn to chase Mays aircraft, but found himself under attack from the Camel of Captain Roy Brown. All three aircraft turned and weaved low along the Somme River, the all red Triplane coming under intense fire from the ground as well as from Browns aircraft. No one knows exactly who fired the crucial bullet, but Manfred von Richthofens aircraft was seen to dive suddenly and impact with the ground. The Red Baron was dead and his amazing run of 80 victories was over. The painting shows Mays aircraft (D3326) in the extreme distance, pursued by DR.1 (425/17) and Browns Camel (B7270) in the foreground.

Captain Roy Brown engages the Red Baron, 21st April 1918 by Ivan Berryman. (PC)
 With a final 47 victories to his credit, Robert Alexander Little was one of the highest-scoring British aces of World War 1, beginning his career with the famous No 8 (Naval) Squadron in 1916, flying Sopwith Pup N5182, as shown here. On 21st April 1917, he was attacked and shot down by six aircraft of Jasta Boelke, Little being thrown from the cockpit of his Sopwith Camel on impact with the ground. As the German aircraft swooped in to rake the wreckage with machine gun fire, Little pulled his Webley from its holster and began returning fire before being assisted by British infantry with their Lewis guns. Such was the character of this great pilot who finally met his death whilst attacking Gotha bombers on the night of 27th May 1918.

 In January 1941, the young Mario Arillo was appointed the rank of Lieutenant Commander, placed in charge of the Regia Marina's submarine <i>Ambra</i> and was dispatched to the Mediterranean to help disrupt supplies to the Allied forces.  In May of that same year, Arillo attacked the British Dido Class Cruiser <i>HMS Bonaventure</i>, and Destroyers <i>HMS Hereward</i> and <i>HMS Stuart</i>, south of Crete, en route from Alexandria, the cruiser <i>Bonaventure</i> being sunk with great loss of life.  The <i>Ambra</i> is depicted here in a calmer moment, two of her crew scanning the horizon for 'business'.

Hunter's Dusk by Ivan Berryman. (PC)
 Under the command of Gianfranco Gazzana-Priaroggia, the Regia Marina submarine Leonardo da Vinci was to become the most successful non-German submarine of World War Two.  On 21st April 1943, she encountered the liberty ship SS John Drayton which was returning, unladen, to Capetown from Bahrain and put two torpedoes into her before surfacing to finish her off with shells.  The deadly reign of terror wrought by the combination of Gazzana-Priaroggia and his submarine came to an end just one month later when the Leonardo da Vinci was sunk by HMS Active and HMS Ness off Cape Finistere.

Scourge of the Deep - Leonardo da Vinci by Ivan Berryman. (PC)
 Sitting menacingly at a depth of 15 metres below the surface, just 2 km outside the heavily defended harbour of Alexandria, the Italian submarine Scire is shown releasing her three manned torpedoes, or <i>Maiali</i>, at the outset of their daring raid in which the British battleships HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Valiant and a tanker, were severely damaged on 3rd December 1941.  All six crew members of the three <i>Maiali</i> survived the mission, but all were captured and taken prisoner.  Luigi Durand de la Penne and Emilio Bianchi can be seen moving away aboard 221, whilst Vincenzo Martellotta and Mario Marino (222) carry out systems checks.  Antonio Marceglia and Spartaco Schergat, on 223, are heading away at the top of the picture.

I have always loved painting and drawing, but when I was a lad at school in Norfolk, Art was never considered a career subject and certainly not encouraged, but in 1965 my family moved to Farnborough and my new art teacher was brilliant. At age 15 I passed both O-Level and A-Level Art, then went on to Farnham Art School. Leaving college my first career was in graphics, working for a while in London, then as an illustrator for Yellow Pages. I still continued to paint during my evenings and weekends developing my own painting techniques. I very soon began to realise that I couldn’t keep up with the demand for my paintings, so in 1984 I took the decision to give up my day job and paint full time. This was the best decision I ever made, and since then I have always had a full schedule of exhibitions, private commissions, demonstrations and more recently, workshops. I have always been inspired by Constable and Turner, my favourite subject is the traditional landscape, using watercolour or acrylic as my main medium. In 1989 I started my own Fine Art print publishing company which has over 150 of my images including landscapes, cricket and golf scenes, these are sold in shops and galleries throughout the world. My paintings continue to be much in demand, in both original and the printed form. I have works in both public and private collections throughout the USA, Europe and Japan. In 1996 I was honoured to win the prestigious Fine Art Guild award for the Best Up and Coming Artist. In 2001 my first book Brush with Watercolour was published by Search Press. It has proved a major success and has been reprinted so many times that it has now sold over 100,000 copies and is one of the best selling watercolour books ever. In 2004 my book Brush with Acrylic was published and is repeating the success of my first book, not just in the United Kingdom, but worldwide. I have since written ten more books with more titles in the pipeline. In 1990 I began to develop my unique range of brushes, beginning with the now famous Fangogh brush. This expanded into quite a range of speciality brushes, unique to me and the logical progression of this was to create teaching videos many of which you can now see on the Painting and Drawing Channel 166 on TV. I also realised that there was a lack suitable paints on the market, so I developed my now famous Three Greens, Three Autumn Shades and the colour Shadow, all created to help make painting easier. I spend much of my time travelling up and down the country demonstrating to Art societies and clubs as well as various Art Shows. I also hold workshops now in the US. In 2006 I moved from Farnborough and now live in Bourton-on-the-Water in the Cotswolds with my partner Fiona Peart, we are getting married in 2011. This is a fabulous place to live, surrounded by beautiful subjects to paint and as we are both Artists we are very happy here.
