  1. Afternoon all,

    a sign of the times that I have the unenviable task of commissioning a final piece of silver that we shall bequeath to the unit that we are to join some the future etc etc

    Wondered if anyone could recommend a decent silversmith that isn't going the charge an arm and a leg? My intention is to give the receiving unit a real problem in terms of the size of the thing and making sure we're always remembered!!!

    Yours in anticipation,

    As centrepieces go, it certainly fits the criteria that you'll always be remembered.

    Chap who now owns it is 'ex-mob' and an old chum of mine. Highly recommended!
  5. Given the rapidly-reducing nominal roll, perhaps a nice little silver-plated light switch might be appropriate? A small plaque could be affixed, with the inscription "Utinam ultimum relinquere placere eveni lucem."

  6. Peter Hicks did one for our lot. Solid silver MAN vehicle. It cost a ******* lot but being a Gurkha Regt i think money and most likely knowing them, silver jewelery was produced from "somewhere" to make it! Very good detail
  7. Really? :? I assume you mean a scale model of a MAN vehicle but I'd be interested in seeing a picture of it just the same.
  8. yes, it was a EPLS. I arranged for MAN to supply the measurements and i think they sent some drawings over as well. This is it......
    MAN EPLS Vehicle
  9. Quite clever. I expect it makes quite a centerpiece on the old Mess table.
  10. Go one better and have it remote-controlled.
