Antique Prints

Since 1763 the name 'Russborough' has been synonymous with collecting and dealing in fine art. In the closing decades of the last century the historic town of Port Hope has become home to Lord Russborough's Annex, which specialises in an individual mix of antique maps, paintings and prints.

While Lord Russborough's Annex features a great many works of museum calibre, we also offer a wonderful selection of prints priced at under $100.

Decorative  and hard to find view of the parade of the Scots Fusilier Guards, prior to their departure for the Crimean War.

First established in 1805, the Scots Fusilier Guards were deployed in the Napoleonic Wars and later in the Crimean War.

In 1854, the Crimean War began, which pitted the United Kingdom, France and the Ottoman Empire against the Russian Empire. The 1st Battalion of the Scots Guards Fusiliers were dispatched as part of the Guards Brigade to the East, being deployed to Malta, Bulgaria and Turkey, before, in September, the British finally landed in the Crimea, at a place called Calamity Bay.

The British and their French allies then began the advance on Sevastopol, a Russian naval base, but was blocked at the River Alma by Russian forces. And here came the Battalion's first engagement at the Battle of Alma, an action that saw chaotic and heavy hand-to-hand combat between the British and Russians. The road to Sevastopol runs through a gap between two hills, one to the east, known as Kourgane Hill and the other to the west, known as Telegraph Hill. On Kourgane Hill there consisted two earthworks, one known as the 'Great Redoubt' on the western side of the hill, while the other was on the eastern side, known as the 'Lesser Redoubt'.

The 5th Battalion Royal Scots of Canada were a Montreal regiment. Originally raised as the '5th Battalion Volunteer Militia Rifles', the unit was the first in the Canadian volunteer militia to wear Scottish dress. By 1935, the regiment had managed to appropriate the dress and title of the senior Highland regiment in the British army, becoming 'The Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment) of Canada'.

In 1881 however, the 25th Regiment of Foot became The 1st Battalion The King's Own Borderers and in 2006 it was merged into The Royal Regiment of Scotland.
