Two Battalions of the Rifles Regiment independently approached me to design and make a mess table to commemorate their tour in Afghanistan. Although each table is unique there is a common design thread connecting them.

""..... the Officers Mess was looking to commission a piece that would commemorate the tour. Rather then collect another piece of Mess Silver the Mess approached Nick. Nick came up with a truly imaginative design which not only encapsulated aspects of the tour, but also embodied the golden threads of the Regiment. As a piece of art it subtlety challenges the norms of Mess furniture while still fitting in to the Mess environment. Hopefully it will be around as a reminder of the tour and a record of those who have gone before for many years to come."

"An exquisite piece of craftsmanship; contemporary and bold in design and yet comfortable in the traditional setting of an Officers’ Mess. It is the combination of his innovative design and his quality of work that makes Nick’s work so unique and timeless. A moment of important military operational history has been worthily captured and is now displayed for future generations to see."
