This memorial piece is a fitting tribute to the hundreds of military divers who have undergone arduous training to prepare them for the job they do without question and often without recognition. The detail is phenomenal and the quality outstanding and is matched by the people it represents. There are only 300 in the world so if you don't have one ... don't wait too long!
New friend came today! Thank you all. Very pleased.
Today I was very pleased to receive my bronze diver statuette. Even my sons reckon it’s cool and one day no doubt it will be passed on to them. Thanks to Tony Sexton and Paul Guiver for the work they have done in making this project a reality. Also thanks to the association for all the good work they do. I look forward to seeing everyone at the unveiling of the 10ft version. Regards R. Harker
That is one might fine piece i must say...it is excellent, absolutely love it....thanks to all
Travis Detke with what we think is the first matching pair of the Military Diver Memorial and Jake Statuettes.
It’s a privilege to be a benefactor to the Military Divers Memorial. #075 is a powerful reminder of the year of my CD’s Course (1975) and the hard work & dedication all British Military Divers endure to be the best in the world. A big thank you to Paul & Tony for providing this exceptionally detailed and proportioned Statuette, it really is outstanding. Delivery was super quick. I can’t wait to see the Military Divers Memorial being “on the job”. Best regards Jim
It’s the best Christmas present ever. The diver is so well made. Every time I look at it though it reminds me of welding in Roysth docks in January feeezing lol
Look what arrived today ! I even managed to get my coin number as the limited edition number. It does dwarf the rest of the collection though. Well chuffed with it.
Received this magnificent statuette yesterday. It was back in the early 70’s I last dived this gear. I was surprised at the weight of it, just over a third of the complete set Looking forward to seeing the final statue.
I love it 👍 even though I nearly put my back out lifting it lol.
Very pleased to have received my statue. The professionalism and handling by Paul and Tony. I can only say thanks and it was well worth the wait Thanks again
I am so, so proud to be a member of a very small club. Royal Navy Clearance Divers are, to me, a family who will give everything to their brothers. This is why I was so happy to be one of the first recipients of this magnificent statuette.
From me to me! Even better than I expected.
Here's my Military Diver Memorial statuette from Paul and Tony, damn fine quality, cheers lads. P.S. It's not usually by the pond, tis my artistic-ness having a day out. xx
Dear Paul & Tony, I was thrilled to receive my Military Diver Memorial Statuette. The detail and quality is exceptional! I plan to be present for the unveiling of the memorial in 2021 at the National Memorial Arboretum. Thank you for the professional service and delivery, and I could not be more delighted with the Military Diver Memorial Statuette!
There are so many great things to say about this amazing piece of work! The attention to detail is excellent and the quality is exceptional. I have had mine mounted in a acrylic box with a mirror back (so you can see the amazing design without having to move it) and a colour changing light. It now stands in pride of place in my living room. I am proud and honoured to be an owner and in part contributing in the completion of this amazing project. Oh yes and I forgot to say “JESUS ITS HEAVY”!
Had an extremely heavy parcel arrive last week. The Military Diver Memorial statue has taken pride of place in the study. The workmanship is fantastic and the attention to detail outstanding.
Very pleased to receive this chap today. A very fitting piece to honour all those that venture where others dare not. KR
Paul/Tony. Brilliant piece of workmanship, details excellent, down to the short sword tucked away at the back. Credit to all you guys concerned in the making of this fine specimen. A fine specimen to be cherished in years to come.
I must say the statuette is very detailed and I’m looking forward to seeing the memorials unveiling. Well done to those who have supported & spent many hours trying to bringing this memorial to fruition.
Received my Statue today. Absolutely over the moon with this fine piece of work. BZ to Paul Guiver and Tony Sexton for all your hard work to bring this project to fruition. Cheers Scouse Fleming 👍
As a dealer and collector of fine art this piece is exquisite, with my late father being a Navy Diver it is priceless, Thank you Paul and Tony for hand delivering it!
Love the new addition to my collection. Great honour to be part of historic memorials. Cheers.
