Sculpture to commemorate the 'Sawdust Fusiliers'
Life-sized wooden carvings to commemorate the role of the ‘Sawdust Fusiliers’ who were based at Stover near Newton Abbot in Devon during the First World War.

The sculpture was commissioned by ‘Devon Remembers’ and carved by Andrew Frost.

Between 1916 and 1917 a battalion of 1600 members of the Canadian Forestry Corps (known as the Sawdust Fusiliers) felled timber from the Stover Estate which was used in France and Belgium during the First World War.
