Product Description

When Britain's fight to secure the seas was at its height, the Corps of Royal Marines found its true vocation. Raiding, defending and sniping, usually against French Sharpshooters placed high in enemy ship's rigging, a practise that Nelson despised and banned from the Royal Navy. Members of the Corps learnt to use their initiative attacking across the wooden decks of 'Men of War' to capture rather than sink a valuable prize.

The sculpture depicts a marine sharpshooter of 1805, poised to come into the aim, with the intention of shooting down his enemy equivalent, keeping his ship's deck secure to allow seagoing activities to continue.
