MSP praises Nairn Foundry

Highlands & Islands MSP David Stewart has lodged a motion in the Scottish Parliament today recognising the dedication and commitment of the team at the Black Isle Bronze Foundry on completion of their crafting of the bronze horse ‘Poppy’ which is to be a memorial to all the horses, mules and donkeys killed in WW1.

David said “The horse is the first national memorial to the millions of horses, mules and donkeys from across the Commonwealth killed in WW1. It is testament to the endeavour and work of those involved at the Black Isle Foundry in Nairn, that the construction and sculpting of this life sized model was awarded to them by the War Horse Memorial organisation.

“The finished sculpture will be sited in Berkshire, at Royal Ascot and I understand that the public in the North can get a quick glimpse of the horse at Falcon Square on Saturday 28th April 2018.

Fantastic news as praise for Black Isle Bronze is long overdue. They have over the years been commissioned to produce some amazing works & these works are exported all over the world.

Keep up the good work everyone!
