The SAS Historical Foundation is extremely fortunate to count renowned military artist Ian Coate amongst its volunteer members. Ian has been given the title of ‘Artist in Residence’ and through his paintings he has provided a rare insight into aspects of life in the Regiment, at home and on operations. His experience as a former soldier, with strong family ties to the Regiment has provided him with a unique ability to capture the spirit of the Regiment through his art. Ian also generously tutors members of the Regimental Family who are interested in fulfilling their artistic desires and through his contributions and efforts, remains a very valuable member of the Foundation. Ian’s artwork is displayed throughout the Historical Collection.
