Captain Sir William Peel VC

1m x 1m
The design shows Peel in the Crimean War where he won the VC.
A live Russian shell landed among the brigade’s ammunition stores. Peel picked up the shell with the fuse fizzing and threw it over the parapet. To his right above we see his Victoria Cross displayed and below his home in Sandy, the Swiss Cottage lodge, (now the visitors centre of the RSPB - hence bird flying above) To the bottom right will be a plaque, cast as if in stone, with the legend of his life and accomplishments. 1824 – 1858 (Died of smallpox in India).
