‘Over the Top’ is one of very few officially commissioned works depicting a specific and clearly identifiable action. The painting commemorates the 1st Artists’ Rifles involvement in an attack on the morning of 30th December, 1917, at Welsh Ridge, near Marcoing (south west of Cambrai in north east France). The unit was recalled from ‘rest’ in response to a German attack and hastily committed to action. The consequences were disastrous and the Artists’ Rifles suffered heavy casualties; Ministry of Information Commission, Scheme 2
