Battle of Abu Klea, 17 January 1885 Featured Khartoum Print

Battle of Abu Klea, 17 January 1885

Battle of Abu Klea, 17 January 1885. Oil on canvas signed and dated lower left: W B Wollen 1896, by William Barns Wollen (1857-1936), 1896. In a race against time to relieve General Gordon, besieged at Khartoum, a relief column under General Sir Garnet Wolseley set out from Cairo in October 1884. Realising that his infantry, travelling in boats up the Nile, might not reach Khartoum in time to save Gordon, Wolseley detached a Desert Column to travel overland by a faster but more dangerous route. On 17 Jan 1885 this Column, commanded by General Herbert Stewart, was attacked by the Mahdists at Abu Klea. The resulting battle was later described by Winston Churchill as the most savage and bloody action ever fought in the Soudan by British troops'. The British square broke and was closed only after desperate hand-to-hand fighting. The British suffered 168 casualties, the Mahdists about 1100. The Column finally reached Khartoum on 28 January, two days after the town had fallen. Date: 1885

London - General Gordons Statue

London - General Gordon's Statue in St. Martin's Place, London. A statue of Gordon on a camel by Edward Onslow Ford was erected in Chatham funded by monies raised by soldiers and officers of the Royal Engineers. A replica of this statue was briefly on display close by Trafalgar Square (as shown here) prior to being shipped out to Khartoum (surviving the sinking of two of its transporting vessels, the Cedarden which sunk in the Thames and the SS Lesbian which was submerged in the Nile!). See 10295283 and 10493839 for views of the statue in situ in Khartoum. Following Sudanese independence in the late 1950s, the statue returned to the UK, and was placed on display at Gordon's School at West End near Woking, Surrey where it remains to this day. Quite a journey! Date: circa 1901
