Australia’s greatest warhorse recreated by passionate Sculptor Carl Valerius

A life-size model sculpture of the Australia’s Greatest Warhorse, Bill the Bastard, resides in Murrumburrah, NSW, the home of the 1st Australian Horse. A dedicated team is committed to having the model bronzed. Once the bronzing is complete, the statue of Bill and his five riders will be unveiled in Murrumburrah NSW to commemorate the end of WW1.

Create a life-sized model of Bill the Bastard, Australia's Greatest Warhorse, Michael Shanahan and four Tassie Troopers.
Spread the story of Bill the Bastard to commemorate the significant role played by the Australian Light Horse in WW1.
Engage all Australians to help raise funds needed to transform the model of Bill the Bastard into a bronzed sculpture.
Bronze and place the sculpture of Bill the Bastard within the Light Horse Precinct Memorial, Murrumburrah NSW.
