A memorial to the husky sledge dog, created by sculptor David Cemmick, can be viewed at SPRI, Cambridge. The monument commemorates an era when huskies supported Antarctic field travel. Voluntary subscriptions have helped to raise the money for the statue which originally sat outside BAS Headquarters.
The life-size bronze statue is mounted on a plinth of York sandstone with a bronze plaque in front, also mounted on a York sandstone block, that lists all the FIDS/BAS husky dog team names with an inscription ‘Erected by their companions and friends 2009’.
We have to thank our two members Hwfa Jones and Graham Wright for their initiative in starting this project and for persevering over two years, with some assistance from the BAS Office and BAS Club, to raise the necessary funds to commission the work from The Cemmick & Wylder Studio in Lancashire.
