Standing 40cm in his boots, AB Miller is limited to just 2,500 units worldwide. He comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
During the battles of Fromelles and Pozieres on the Western Front, Australia suffered losses far greater than at Gallipoli, and in the desert at Romani the Australian Light Horse played a decisive part in the battle that finally put a stop to the Turkish threat to the Suez Canal and marked the beginning of the British forces’ push out of Egypt and into Palestine. The set includes a numbered certificate of authenticity and a vial of sand collected from the landing beaches at Gallipoli. The timber like display case folds into a stunning desk unit or can be wall mounted. Limited to 2,500 sets.
