    Hi guys,

    Its been a while since I worked on this, but it is now almost done. It needs the buckle adding to the bandolier and the buttons adding. I shall place a few odd rounds in the bandolier, too (thanks to Steve Readdie!)

    Huge thanks also to Steve R for producing the magnificent carbine in his left hand, it is superb!

    All based on Richie's 24th foot bust, this has undergone some serious surgery, unlike the other one I did! I intend to paint this one up in a variation of one of the tunics in the Staffs Regt Museum, which only has yellow flashes on the collar behind the knot, the cuffs are red.

    Pte Wassall's story is on a previous post, so I won't repeat it. Hope you like it, so far!

    Thanks for the good comments, guys!

    Mike - I could get around the lack of legs by the fact that he waded into the river to rescue his mate!!
