Statue repair update

I wanted to update you as to the progress of the statue glasses damage/repair.
As you may or may not know he was vandalised last year and his glasses were bent out of shape.
We opened a fundraiser and raised sufficient funds for the replacement and repairs to be carried out. That’s thanks to the generosity of Dads Army fans around the world.
I have been in constant talks with the foundry who are planning to visit Thetford next month to remove the damaged pair and replace them with a new set that have now been made.
There was a delay due to the workload of the foundry - they are incredibly busy and that is testament to the quality of their work.
So on behalf of the museum I would like to thank everyone that donated and made the replacement possible.
