Yorkshire Post – Memorial Marks Regiment’s 300 Years

A Model of a memorial – which is expected to go up in Halifax next year commemorating 304 years of service by the Duke of Wellington’s Regiment – was unveiled at ad rinks reception in London.

Arthur Wellesley, 9th Duke of Wellington, welcome guests to Apsley House, on Hyde Park Corner, in aid of the Duke of Wellington’s Regiment Memorial Appeal.

Created by the world-class figurative sculptor Andrew Sinclair, the completed memorial will be unveiled next spring by the Duke in Halifax, the home of the Regiment for over 200 years.

It will “honour the members of the Regiment who gave their lives to our country, acknowledge those who served in all battalions and recognise the families and their home county”.

Mr Sinclair said “Having a great fascination for military history, I am very much looking forward to delving into the longstanding past of the Regiment and creating a sculpture which commemorates its admirable spirit and the qualities of the Yorkshire soldier within the design”.

The Duke wished the Regiment every success in its fundraising endeavours.

Another £150,000 still needs to be raised towards the £225,000 cost of the memorial.
