SAS Sculptures by Robert Hitchcock
Robert Charles Hitchcock (born 18 August 1944) is an Australian sculptor. He commenced his career in 1970 and works in a wide variety of subjects and materials. Hitchcock is one of the leading portrait sculptors currently working in Australia today. He is known for his life size (and super life size) bronze sculptures which are located in private collections as well as public works of art in Australia and overseas.
In 2006 Hitchcock was commissioned to produce three sculptures of SAS soldiers for the SASR History and Research Centre in conjunction with the 2007 Golden Jubilee Anniversary of the formation of the Australian SAS. In 2012 he was commissioned by the SAS Historical Foundation to produce a bronze sculpture of a military working dog for inclusion in a memorial for dogs that have died during service with SASR.
This bronze sculpture represents a soldier from the latter years of the SAS Company through to the late 1970s. The soldier is in a military funeral drill position called ‘Rest On Your Arms Reversed’ using the L1A1 Self-Loading Rifle. The sculpture is one of two guarding the entrance to the SASR Garden of Reflection.
