Assault on the Breach of San Sebastian by Mark Churms.


Assault on the Breach of San Sebastian by Mark Churms.

The Storming party, 750 volunteers, included 200 men of the Guards, one hundred each from the First and Coldstream Guards. They moved off at two in the morning on the 31st August 1813, and occupied a ruined convent where they remained till half past nine. Aware of the almost impossible task ahead of them, and subjected to a violent electric thunderstorm, the troops waited in a state of savage anticipation. Wild senseless laughter was said to have preceded the attack on the breach which could not be entered except in single file under heavy fire. The troops attacked in succession, but were struck down by hundreds. General Graham then ordered the artillery to fire over the heads of the assailants, clearing the ramparts. A shell ignited a quantity of powder, and under cover of the explosions, the storming party forced its way into the town. San Sebastian was savagely sacked and burned, and the good name of Wellingtons Army suffered as it had done at Badajoz. The civilians were raped, ro.........

Captain A. C. De Wiart Advancing To The Attack Through An Intense Fire Barrage.


Captain A. C. De Wiart Advancing To The Attack Through An Intense Fire Barrage.

Owing largely to the dauntless courage and inspiring example of Captain (Temporary Lieutenant-Colonel) Adrian Carton De Wiart, D.S.O., of the Grenadier Guards, a serious reverse was averted during severe and prolonged operations. He displayed the utmost energy and courage in facing the British attack home. After three other battalion commanders had become casualties, he controlled their commands, and ensured that the ground won was maintained at all costs. He frequently exposed himself in the organisation of positions and of supplies, passing unflinchingly through a most intense fire barrage. He was awarded the V.C. for most conspicuous bravery, coolness and determination.

Lance-Corporal McDonnell Shows What Three Brave Men Can Do Against Ten Times Their Number.

A large party of Germans in an advanced trench in a wood surprised Lance- Corporal McDonnell and two companions of the 1st Grenadier Guards when reconnoitring on the Aisne on The 23rd of September 1914. The enemy thought they had there preyed secure and began leisurely to walk out to take the three men prisoners. To their astonishment McDonnell gave a sharp order to fire, and the bullets flew thick and fast, finding many a victim. Before the Germans could recover from their confusion the three audacious Guardsmen had made good their escape. He was awarded the D.C.M.

Grenadier Officer, 1st Guards 1688 by P H Smitherman


Grenadier Officer, 1st Guards 1688 by P H Smitherman

In 1677 the hand grenade was introduced into the army as one of its weapons, and a grenadier company was added to each infantry regiment. This company was composed of picked men, of good physique; it took the place of honour on the right of the line, and assumed a dress different from that of the rest of the regiment. In particular the grenadiers wore a characteristic cap. The usual broad-rimmed hat no doubt interfered with the slinging of the flintlock and the throwing of the grenades, and so a brimless hat was worn which soon became very ornamented. The hat shown here is a very early one and is very decorative, its shape being different from that of the more familiar mitre illustrated elsewhere. Grenadiers coats were also laced differently from those of the rest of the regiment in many cases. The song The British Grenadiers, refers to their looped clothes, alluding no doubt to the extra loops of lace, or tassels, with which they were adorned. The coat worn by this officer is .........

Officer, 1st Guards 1775 by P H Smitherman

This image, based on actual uniforms, shown an officer of the 1st Guards in ceremonial dress.On parade he would be armed with a spontoon as well as his sword. The officers of the other Guards regiments would have been dressed very similarly. A notable feature are the bastion loops of gold lace on the lapels. These became very popular and were adopted by many regiments. All of these bars and loops of lace, of course, developed from the button-holes originally on the coats. Hitherto the skirts of the coat had been lined with the facing colour, blue in the Foot Guards, but here they are white, and it was now almost universal for skirts to be lined like this. These white turn-backs, fastened with an ornamental device, survived in vestigial form on the tails of the coatee until the Crimean war, after which the whole coatee was replaced by a tunic, cut in modern fashion. The braiding on the mess dress of captains and above in the Royal Navy still shows the outline of the pockets worn.........
