This is the original Watercolour painting by James E McConnell.

A fantastic piece by James E. McConnell showing an engagement in the battle for Spion Kop. The battle took place in 1900, the Kop being a hill defended by the British and attacked by 12,000 Boers in the hills beyond.

About 1750 British troops died on the hill which became immortalised when Kop became the nickname for a stand in Liverpool's football ground. Many of the dead soldiers had come from Lancashire so it's adoption is a form of gallows humour.

This is the original artwork for cover of Look and Learn issue no 648 (15 June 1974).
