A military statuette of a Special Forces Trooper with his kit preparing for departure on an Operation. We call this sculpture 'Mission Ready' as it depicts daily life in any one of the UK, US or Special Forces Regiments. We include the standard wooden base and an engraved brass plate( if required) as part of any order.

Mahogany Base (+£50)
Mahogany, Plates Back and Sides (+£60)

It is well understood by all that a modern Special Forces Trooper has to be a true master of a wide array of specialist skills. However behind all the selection, training and skills the 'Clay' is still the man.

Each year we sculpt and make a new Special Forces Presentation Sculpture. In past years we have concentrated on the 'task'. We've sculpted men undertaking very specialist roles including Military Freefall, unleashing an Attack Dog, a Beach Recce and Counter Terrorism.

This year we have decided to make a 'quiet' piece, a sculpture which depicts departure, a common theme for all elements of the Service. 'Mission Ready' depicts the moment a team member picks up his kit and begins the walk to waiting transport. We hope that the sculpture will 'chime' with all ex and serving members of the Special Forces, providing a sense of continuity from the past to the present.

All our statues include an optional engraved plate on the wooden base. On the bronze statues the plate is jewellers brass and the pewter/ silver statues have a nickel silver plate.

To add a plate to your statue please select the option above and enter your engraving details. Please note if the engraving is left blank no plate will be included. If you'd like a blank plate please write this in the engraving details.

Please DOUBLE CHECK the engraving as mistakes will require a new plate to be made.

On the engraving the text will be centred and the font sized to fit the plate.
