Here is my completed original sculpture of the first Canadian and Commonwealth born recipient of the VC. He earned the award for rescuing Sgt. bentley and Trooper Levitt of his regiment in the aftermath if the Charge if the Light Brigade, Oct. 25, 1854. Dunn was born in Toronto, educated at Upper Canada College and Harrow, and he bought a commisssion in the 11th Hussars in 1852. His VC is owned by UCC and is on loan to the Canadian War Museum.

The model is 1/6 scale, sculpey firm, magic sculpt, chain and twine. Painted in acrylics and inks.

Colin, just another masterpiece. One sixth is Action Man sized I believe, must make for an imposing piece on the sideboard. The open mouth brings a lot of life into it and the detail on the sword is outstanding. Gold stars all round I think.
