Finished this one this morning. This diorama is a representation of the shock and disbelief felt in Ulster when news of the casuaties from the first day of the Somme reached Ireland. 5500 men from the 36th Ulster Division were lost in the first two days. The model shows members of the 11th Batt. (South Antrim Vols) Royal Irish Rifles. The stretcher bearers are from 108th Field Ambulance RAMC attached to 36th Ulster Division unable to take in the scene of human destruction before them. Figures are converted from various Airfix multipose pieces, hornet heads and hands were necessary and plenty of Magic Sculpt Scalelink rifles and barbed wire. Painted in oils.
