The relief carved sculpture to commemorate the 10th Battalion the Parachute Regiment is progressing very well. I began carving the work at the beginning of April and have been working on all 3 of the panels. The sculpture is almost 6m long and will be sited near Somerby in Leicestershire in September. The work recognises the names of the fallen soldiers, a consequence of the doomed mission to capture strategic bridges in Holland during WWII, on one one side while the other faces tell some of the quirky tales from the time that the 582 soldiers spent in this quiet corner of Leicestershire.
I will continue to post more images as the project progresses.
