The Sculpture

On 28 June 2016, a bronze sculpture of Sergeant Robert Quigg V.C. was unveiled by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in the town of Bushmills, Co. Antrim. A commemorative paving stone honouring the war hero was unveiled beside the sculpture by His Royal Highness, the Duke of Edinburgh.

The ceremony was the result of four years of work by the Robert Quigg V.C. Commemoration Society. The Society raised approximately £60,000, thanks to the help and support of the people of the Causeway area and far beyond. This statue will be admired by future generations and is regarded as a worthy tribute to a local man who has become a legend.
