The Band of the Grenadier Guards - Fields of RemembranceAs an integral part of the Regiment, the Band have been conscious of the 1st Battalion’s sacrifices made whilst on operations and were eager to support The Colonel's Fund in whichever way they could. Therefore, having performed at a number of events and conducted an incredible two week nationwide tour in support of the Fund, they now release their latest recording, with all profits going to the Fund.
This recording contains some of the Band’s finest work, featuring Military Band classics such as Post Horn Gallop and The British Grenadiers, as well as virtuoso spectaculars showcasing individual talent including the amazing Brillante played by Musician Anthony Somerville. The CD also features Fields of Remembrance, which was specially commissioned for The Colonel’s Fund concert tour by Nigel Clarke. This is his first composition as associate composer to the Band of the Grenadier Guards.
This CD is now available from Regimental Headquarters so please download the booking form and return to Wellington Barracks. Alternatively, contact us direct on 020 7414 3285 or email email@example.com.
Winning the FirefightIn January 2008, the Regiment commissioned Michael Alford, a former Royal Marine and now award-winning artist, to depict the action fought by 3 Platoon of Number 3 Company at Garmsir Village in Helmand province. Titled "Winning the firefight", the painting vividly captures the heat of battle with platoon gunners sending a hail of bullets in the direction of the enemy while the rest of the platoon manouevres into an attack position. This is undoubtedly one of the best paintings yet to record the current conflict in Afghanistan.
Limited edition of 500 giclee prints 22" by 13", printed on ‘Bamboo’ 290gsm paper. Made from renewable resources, this paper has a warm tone and its smooth surface shows the painter’s original mark making.
There is also a special facsimile edition of 25 varnished canvas prints 30" by 18" on premium kiln-dried pine stretcher bars. These are printed on 340gsm matt artists’ cotton canvas with a high quality texture and a natural white tone. The result is virtually indistinguishable from the original oil painting.
A unique opportunity to buy two famous Grenadier prints and contribute to The Colonel's Fund
This edition of Print A and Print B, both painted in 1891, is limited to a run of 500 prints each. The prints, reproduced on superb 310 gsm William Turner art paper, will be produced to the exacting standards of The Fine Art Trade Guild and then endorsed by Regimental Headquarters as a true likeness of the original.
LZ Drop-off - Ready to MoveRAF Chinooks are the workhorses of the British theatre of operations in Afghanistan. This atmospheric image vividly captures the dust and noise surrounding a take-off / landing. A 'stick' of Grenadiers waits for orders to move. The artist, Sarah Travis, is married to a serving Grenadier and was able to hear first-hand accounts of the conflict.
Printed on 'Bamboo' paper, the print measures 20 inches by 16 inches
