    Hi Moz ,

    This looks great , love the face and pose and the way the helmet is pushed back ...the PIAT looks great as well .

    Is this inspiration taken from ..perhaps Francis Jefferson VC

    He was just 22 years old when he found himself fighting at Cassino with the 2nd Bn The Lancashire Fusiliers.
    .
    On 16 May 1944, during an attack on the Gustav Line, Monte Cassino, Italy, the leading company of Fusilier Jefferson's battalion had to dig in without protection. The enemy counter-attacked opening fire at short range, and Fusilier Jefferson, on his own initiative, seized a P.I.A.T. gun and, running forward under a hail of bullets, fired on the leading tank. It burst into flames and all the crew were killed. The Fusilier then reloaded and went towards the second tank which withdrew before he could get within range. By this time our own tanks had arrived and the enemy counter-attack was smashed.

    For this bravery he was awarded the VC , in later years the original medal was stolen from him , he passed away in 1982.

    Hopefully this will be the first of many from you(y)
