    I had the pleasure of painting this bust from Micks Micks of an unusual subject.
    Here is a photo I managed to find on the internet of a group of Officers outside the Officers Mess in Halifax, Canada. I am not sure of the date but 1898 seems to fit the subject.

    Onto the bust which comes in four parts, head , arms and the snowshoes.

    That blurred Sepia photo is one Mick supplied, the other one I found on the web, although Mick has a similar one too. A fun piece and a good un to paint.
    I had seen the osprey book but my converting skills are practically zero.
