A commissioned digital painting of a Land Rover 101 ("1 ton") ambulance of 16 Ambulance Support Group Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC) during Op Grapple (Desert Storm) in the Gulf War 1990 to 1991.
The vehicle was named after a winner of the Victoria Cross, Private Murphy of the equivalent of today's Royal Logistic Corps (RLC). It was based for a time in Al Jubail leading up to its deployment with the Gurkha ASG during the 'ground war'.
The vehicle is known to have served in a variety of operations in Germany, the UK, and former Yugoslavia and was retired in the late nineties and sold to a private owner. Many vehicles of this type are converted into 'campers' and used to explore the stiff terrains of the African and Asian continents, etc.
The painting was from a poor-resolution photograph requiring research from alternative sources to fill in the detail.
