    Great start, could he be a casualty replacement from London? Or a Londoner in Cheshire when war broke out?

    Got the oils out and painted his coat and cap. After a bit of research, changed his scarf to this one , 1874nortwich football club, just base layers so still to be detailed with shadows, highlights and dirt;
