One of our proudest moments was the unveiling of the life size statue of CPL Cameron Baird VC MG at the Currumbin RSL. Unveiled by The Governor General, His Excellency the Honorable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC on the 5th of November 2016.
This statue which is the result of amazing financial support from fundraising, stands to honor Australia 100th Victorian Cross Recipient but to also stand as a symbol of respect for all the 42 lives that were lost in Afghanistan.
The statue stands to represent Australia’s modern day warfare and the stories of bravery that are unheard.
Well over 500 soldiers have been permanently affected by physical injuries sustained in battle.
What is more alarming are the increasing numbers of psychological injuries that soldiers are facing such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) depression and anxiety.
In addition to the life size bronze statue we have produced a limited edition 30cm statuette. We have a total of 2000 statuettes. Each is individually numbered with a pewter coin that will accompany the statuette.
Corporal Cameron Baird VC MG Statuettes cost $195.00 (plus postage). From each purchase of a 30cm statuette $95.00 will go directly to the development and production of the life size statue of Corporal Cameron Baird VC MG.
