Inspired by Able Sea Cat Simon, the limited edition of 500 War Cat joins Royal Crown Derby’s collection of giftware commemorating the service of military animals.
Simon was awarded the PDSA Dickin Medal and Blue Cross for his exemplary service aboard H.M.S Amethyst, protecting food stores on board the ship from rats and raising morale among the navy servicemen aboard, despite being severely injured during the Chinese Civil war known as Yangtze Incident in 1949.
Decorative swirls of blue and 22 carat gold adorn the black and white body of the cat depicting waves, with illustrations of rats scurry around the base of the H.M.S Amethyst, life buoy and anchor to commemorate Simon’s heroic deeds in saving the lives on board, the PDSA Dickin Medal awarded to Able Sea Cat Simon is draped around his neck in 22 carat gold on this stunning limited edition piece to honour alongside our other commemoration to military animals in the collection.
