DHM1318. The Tragedy of Ulster 1976 by Terence Cuneo.
Terence Cuneo has depicted a scene of street violence. The angry mod hurls abuse, missiles and petrol bombs at the soldiers who are outnumbered and restricted in their ability to repsond. Rioting of this sort became less prevalent through the increased efficiency of the Police and Army in containing it, but Terence Cuneos reconstruction typifies the dangerous situation the secuirty forces in Ulster faced during the 1970s. Published in 1977 by the Army and Navy Club, Pall Mall, London.
Signed limited edition of 500 prints, of which we have obtained the last 80 copies.

GDHM9025GL. 1st Battalion Kings Owns Scottish Borderers. The Derryard Action, Co Fermanagh, December 13th 1989 by David Rowlands.
On a dark winter evening, the Permanent Vehicle Check Point (PVCP) north of Rosslea, close to the border with Monaghan, was manned by 8 soldiers commanded by Corporal Robert Duncan. In response to a threat to the border locations an additional 4-man team commanded by Corporal Ian Harvey was on external patrol. From the direction of the border a specially armour-plated lorry, with about twelve terrorists intent on destroying the base stopped, and as Private Houston checked the back of it, automatic gunfire opened up from Armalite and AK47 rifles. Grenades were thrown into the base, and a flame-thrower was aimed at the command sangar. Two RPG7 Rockets were fired at the observation sangar. Heavy suppressive fire continued as the lorry reversed and smashed its way into the compound. Two soldiers were killed. The truck drove out of the devastated PVCP, and a red transit van drove in, laden with explosives. Fortunately only the booster charge exploded. As the patrol came up rapidly, firing at the terrorists, the truck drove off at speed, its two machine-guns mounted on the rear firing, its driver intent on escape. It was found abandoned at the border with a 210 kg bomb on board. The scale and type of this attack had never been seen before in Northern Ireland. Every soldier involved acted with exemplary courage and the determination to defeat the enemy. The conduct of Corporals Duncan and Harvey was in the highest traditions of conspicuous gallantry. Each received the Distinguished Conduct Medal. The events of the Derryard Action are a landmark in the modern fighting history of the King's Own Scottish Borderers. I was phoned soon after the action. I flew to Belfast and was driven to the location. In order to paint the action it was important to see the PVCP in its scarred condition, before it was repaired. The lonely, isolated building put me in mind of the beleaguered little forts which dotted this part of Ireland in the time of Queen Elizabeth I. The soldiers took up the positions they had fought in, while I sketched them in their Tam-o'-shanters. Corporal Ian Harvey is in the foreground with Pte Maxwell. Cpl Robert Duncan kneels in the road.
