    If this is to be the box art Dave then very well done.
    A nicely detailed and clean paint job that lets the purchaser see the possibilities of the piece.
    Very often we see box art that's overdone and overweathered......let the dog see the bone and then he can take it further if he wants. Excellent.
    Cheers

    Just need to invert the Good Conduct badges on the left forearm, otherwise superb piece.

    Very nicely done. The G C badges should be the other way up, with the wound stripes below them on the left forearm. The latter were brass, not white metal.

    Dave ,
    Nice painting for sure ...such a shame about the GC etc being incorrect ...sortable but unnecssary work IMHO :

    maa_182_plate_b.jpg

    The stretcher-bearer (note brassard) is shown as he would have appeared on the first day of the Somme offensive. The green vertical rectangle patch on his helmet cover is part of the first scheme of battle patches used by the 4th Div.:green, yellow and red indicating the brigades; and a horizontal rectangle, a vertical rectangle, a square and a diamond indicating battalions within brigades. A regimental device, this case a patch of Mackenzie tartan, was worn on the sleeves.

    For the attack on 1 July the Seaforths also wore a 'C' in white tape stitched to their sleeves; other units wore different signs. Our subject wears the 'utility' service dress jacket and the first pattern steel helmet; note GC badges indicating nearly 20 years' service, rifle marksman's badge, and the ribbons of the Queen's and King's South African Medals and the long service and Good Conduct Medal.

    A great tribute to these brave SB's , often risking more than life itself saving comrades .

    Thanks for sharing
