The British Antarctic Survey Sledge Dog Memorial

Update: September 2008


by Hwfa Jones


The fund is almost there and the project guaranteed.

On September 10th Graham Wright and I went to see Cemmick and Wylder, the sculptors. We believe that their commitment to this project is more than we could ever have hoped for.

We will have a model mid-December for approval and the bronze will be cast and finished 15th May 2009, ready for erection in the summer.
 
We will be doing some work on the design of the plinth and the plaque. There has been an excellent suggestion that that the plinth should be topped with white stone, a natural quartz or marble, to represent the snow surface.
