Leading leather-goods company Pemberton & Milner has teamed up with jeweller Garrard to create Military Monopoly, an exquisite deluxe leather and silver version of the old family favourite.
Instead of the traditional streets and stations, Military Monopoly’s properties will be ships of the Royal Navy, units of the Army and stations of the Royal Air Force.
The traditional playing pieces will be replaced by references to military attire – a Household Cavalry helmet, beret, Royal Marines Commando dagger, Royal Air Force jet, sailor’s cap and hard helmet.
15% of sales proceeds will go to three military charities: The RAF Benevolent Fund, The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and ABF The Soldiers' Charity.
Pemberton & Milner founder Elizabeth Finch-Moore says that she came up with the concept both because it fits perfectly with the company’s collection, which includes other luxury leather board games, but also because of their longer term charitable interests:
"Every generation of my family has served with the armed forces, most recently my grandfather in the SRU and SBS (Royal Marines), while my father was a Wing Commander, who then worked with the RAF Benevolent Fund. Each of the three forces charities is close to my heart, especially as they help the families as well as the individuals who have served."
