Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Hi All,
I have not been about much and this is some of the reason why. I commissioned this from my friend Dimitry who is an outstanding talent when it comes to sculpting. It is a caricature representing Pip the Rorke's Drift terrier and is titled.....

"and snappeth the spear in sunder" well dogs like sticks.

I know he was a civilian dog, but I thought he had earned the right to wear the tunic. My friend is due to emigrate to Australia next month with his family and he knows how much I love the Zulu wars. The second offering is his parting gift for me and I was completely taken a back. The reason it is a chimp, because I am a Hartlepool lad and we are known as Monkey Hangers from the legend of hanging the monkey at the time of the Napoleonic wars.

I hope you like these, I love them.
cheers
Richie
