I love to see art work like these by the artist Stuart Brown

The 82nd Airborne Division – ‘America’s Guard of Honor’ – is one of the most powerful forces in the US military arsenal.

Great post I like this one by Stuart Brown Titled Longstop Hill
These prints can be purchased from the website of Stuart Brown



8th (Argyllshire) Battalion The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.

In Tunisia, strong resistance on Longstop Hill blocked the Allied advance on Tunis. On 23 April 1943 the 8th Battalion launched their attack supported by tanks of the North Irish Horse.

On approach, the Commanding Officer and his headquarters were killed. 25 year old Major ‘Jack’ Anderson assumed command. Despite a leg wound, he led the uphill assault, personally overcoming several enemy machine gun posts and mortar positions. The toll was heavy, reducing the Battalion to about 44 officers and men, but the objective was taken with 200 prisoners.

For his gallant leadership, Anderson was awarded the Victoria Cross. He was killed in action in Italy some months later.

FROZEN - Battle of the Chosin Reservoir, November, 1950 - painting by Ken Smith


“At about 0020…the enemy broke through one platoon area and penetrated as far as the company CP. Pandemonium ensued, with the sound of Chinese trumpets and whistles adding to the confusion. It became difficult to distinguish friend from foe. Observers reported tracer bullets were so thick they lighted up the darkness like Christmas trees. Some enemy troops made their way far enough inside to surround the battalion CP, the portable galley, and the provision tent. But once inside the battalion lines, the Chinese disintegrated into looting groups. They were either killed or captured.”

– William B. Hopkins, One Bugle No Drums
Wow, this is some nice stuff.....I've never seen any of these before, lovely work I say!! (Y)
'What Matters Most' by artist Stuart Brown, commissioned by Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps.

During Operation GRITROCK in Sierra Leone from 2014-15, personnel from the UK Defence Medical Services and the Royal Canadian Medical Service provided clinical care for Ebola patients that was both advanced and compassionate despite the hazardous and arduous nature of the work involved.
