One of our oldest and most popular Parachute Regiment statues, the Alert is an 11" sculpture of a Para in full combats including webbing and bergan covering from the late 1980's to the mid 2000's before Operations in Iraq and Afghanistan began to shift the standard issue kit. Anyone who served during this period will have dressed in the same or if not very similar gear and used the standard SA80 with a SUSAT sight. For the Para version he is wearing his beret, there is a pegasus patch on the shoulder and a Parachute Regiment cap badge set into the base at his feet. Included is a personalised engraved brass plate.
Every statue is proudly handmade in the UK and are used by all the Para battalions as retirement gifts and presentations for promotions and leaving the unit.
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.
