    This is a 54mm figure of a British soldier in Afghanistan in 1878. My wife's Great Grandfather, John Mullen, was out there at this time and fought at Ali Musjid. I have painted this figure to commemorate him.

    Thanks for the comments Kev. Yes it's a Beneito kit and he is painted in acrylics, oils and enamel.

    Very nice Jazz and as Nap says a fitting tribute to your wife's Great Grandfather.

    What Regiment was he with, in those far off days?

    Thanks Don. John joined the 108th Regiment which later became the Royal Irish Rangers. I have googled for pictures of their uniform but it appears that the Infantry at this time dressed quite similarly in Afghanistan so if there are mistakes in the uniform I apologise in advance.
