Created in secrecy until presented, this Celebration Memory Box was gifted to an overwhelmed veteran during a special event dedicated solely to a very modest and gentle man. His enormous courage and dedication to his fellow countrymen has been acknowledged by The Queen in awarding him the Military Medal for saving the lives of many of the Royal Marines who stood by his side.
This Marquetry Box will now keep safe forever his story, his prestigious medals and the little keepsakes that mean so much more to him than we will ever know. The lid is decorated with the battle on that fateful day depicted in Marquetry comprising Burr Poplar, Sycamore, Dyed Lime, Walnut and Quilted Maple. The sides are fitted with concealed medal drawers and the front also has a concealed shallow drawer, fitted to house the Medal Citation. Each drawer is locked from the inside.
Upon opening the lid the interior is decorated with a portrayal of Queen Elizabeth bestowing the Military Medal upon a proud Royal Marine in the Palace Throne Room; the timbers used are Silky Oak, Dyed Lime and Maple. Below is a marquetry facsimile of the citation overlaying the crest of the Royal Marines. The final words of the citation, inlayed in Ebony, say it all: “His actions serve as an inspiration to all ranks.”
