What an unusual design but very evocative too. Have a great day and it's good to see all your hard work is finally being recognised.
Do hope to see the pictures of the outfit and hat which I think is a must!!

The Mariners name for Camelon folk was a new one on me.

A most unusual design for the name panels, like a ships metal hull panels with lifting eyes included.

I took these photos a day of so after the unveiling/dedication ceremony.





The sloping paving stones bordering the path are inscribed with the names and dates of significant battles.
