The unveiling and dedication ceremony for the forged stainless steel and copper sculpture was an emotional occasion attending by large numbers of serving and retired Commandos.  It was clear that their dagger is of huge symbolic significance to all Commandos, both yound and old, and the sculpture already seems to have become something of a touchstone for them.  We were honoured not only to be invited to this special ceremony, but also to be presented to HRH The Duke of Edinburgh along with the rest of the project team.
