The Big Push - Passchendaele 1917 by Anthony Saunders.


The Big Push - Passchendaele 1917 by Anthony Saunders.

Swamped by mud amidst a desolate, shattered landscape, men and horses of the Royal Field Artillery drag their 18 pounder field-gun towards a new position on 15 November 1917, during the final days of the Battle of Passchendaele. Whilst the army continues its grim fight on the ground, overhead Sopwith Camels from 45 Squadron Royal Flying Corps tangle in an equally deadly duel with German Albatros fighters of Jasta 6. Flying the lead Sopwith Camel is the RFC Ace, 2nd Lt Kenneth Montgomery who scored the last of his 12 victories in this dogfight when he shot down the German Ace Leutnant Hans Ritter von Adam, the Commanding Officer of Jasta 6 with an impressive 21 victories to his name. To commemorate one of the most significant anniversaries in history, Anthony Saunders has created a powerful painting portraying the bleak sacrifice made by so many heroic young men. The names of the bitter battles they endured, however, still live on a hundred years later - Ypres, the Somme, Vimy Ridge, Arras, Loos - and one of the most savage - Passchendaele.

Von Richthofen brings down Ronald Hinings of  73 Squadron, making his 78th victory.  This painting depicts the battle between Manfred von Richthofen and Lieutenant Ronald George Adams of 73 Squadron. Since his arrival on the battlefield in the late summer of 1916, this made Richthofen's 78th victory out of a final total of 80.  The aircraft he was flying was a Fokker Drl No 477/17.  It is shown with red upper wing surfaces, tail plane, rudder and wheel covers.  National markings were in the process of change in March/April 1918.  There is no evidence of the precise date of change and so 477/17 is shown with its original Cross Patee markings.

 Although not as well known as the Gotha series of bombers, the Allgemeine Elektricitats-Gessellschaft G.IV acquitted itself well in the closing stages of World War 1, although its limited fuel load restricted it to short range duties and reconnaissance missions. The G.IV was popular with its crews because it was extremely robust and featured such state of the art developments as onboard radios and electrically-heated flying suits and was an easy aircraft to fly. Kampfgeschwader 4 are specially noted for flying their G.IVs up to seven missions a night on the Italian front.
