On Armistice Day, Paul Dibble's latest commission work was unveiled in Featherston to honour the fading memory of the World War I Featherston Military Training Camp. The Featherston Military Training Camp was New Zealand's largest camp, in three years overseeing the training of more than 60,000 of the 100,000 New Zealanders who served overseas in Egypt, Palestine, and the Western Front. The memorial features colossal slanting bronze pillars at a height of 3.5m tall which took nearly 18 months to complete and cost around $600,000. The concept represents the soldier's marching from the camp through Featherston and over the Remutaka Ranges.

The Crossing in central Christchurch has recently been reopened after its closure due to the devastating earthquake in February 2011. A massive development costing $140 million of the commercial complex has been complete with businesses and shoppers now making their way back into the City Centre.

Property developer Philip Carter was at the helm of this undertaking, adding a personal touch to the development with a Paul Dibble sculpture as one of its main features. Carter's home was severely damaged, collapsing down a 100m cliff, along with Dibble's The Sleepwalker from 2008.  Carter managed to stop thieves from cutting the sculpture up and has rescued and repaired it, where it now is proudly cantilevered over Kettlewell Lane. Carter says its a symbol of the City coming through a disaster and being much strong for it. For further information about this, see here.
