Welcome to the Irish Republic, Sir! A British infantry patrol lost on the border with Northern Ireland, 1988.

Oil on hardboard by Captain Jonathan Wade, Royal Highland Fusiliers, 1988.

This patrol has stopped to consult the map and get its bearings, while two men are posted as sentries on the look out. The painting’s title was a phrase actually uttered by a sergeant to his officer, in a spirit of grim humour. It refers to their realisation, by consulting the map, that they have accidentally crossed the border into the Republic of Ireland.
