Sgt Watchman V is the mascot of the Staffordshire Regiment and holds the Freedom of Tamworth.
We have launched a community project to build a life size bronze statue of Sgt Watchman V to honour all the mascots and handlers that have served the regiment, as well as all the servicemen of the Regiment itself.
Watchman and their handlers carry out their duties on a voluntary basis and give up much of their time to carry out this important duty. We believe they deserve a statue to Watchman and his predecessors in a public place, to thank them for their selfless service to the Regiment and County.
Watchman is a familiar face to many people in Staffordshire and a much loved mascot. Recently crowned the "Westminster Dog of the Year", all Watchman have attracted much public attention and love over the many years of service to the Regiment.
We can think of no more fitting tribute to the Regiment than a bronze statue of Sgt Watchman V.
A life size bronze statue has now been commissioned and we need to raise the funds. The estimated cost is £10k and we have already received £2k towards our goal.
The project would take about 6 months to complete.
Please support the project and help us build a lasting tribute to the Staffordshire Regiment and its many hardworking mascots and handlers.
The project is supported by Tamworth Borough Council and Community Together CIC. All funds raised will held by Community Together CIC (a not for profit community interest company) until the project is completed.
