    Lovely idea. You could give the lad a drum and make him a boy drummer. It's worth noting that in Victorian England the RN was held in very high esteem, so lots of boys, including Queen Victoria's sons and grandsons wore sailor outfits.

    Hi Bob, Mike, Nap Jim and Steve,
    Thank you all glad you like the idea.

    Mike I love the idea of doing another version in Sailor uniforms, just might have to do a companion piece to this one. Although I know Roger will be after me about my square rig and knots.:LOL:
    cheers

    Hi Mike,
    I really like that idea, so much so I am going to a version in 120mm for release at some point. I have been thinking of what to do in Naval uniforms, thank you for an excellent prompt.
    cheers

    What a nice piece! A young lad aspiring to be a soldier like his father. One would guess the boy would grow up to see service in the late 19th Century (India, Sudan, Boer War) and maybe encourage a son of his own to join up. The army runs in families as we all know.
