Anzac Day

To celebrate Anzac Day I painted the limited edition 28mm WWI Honour Guard figure from Figures in Comfort. This figure represents the Australian Army Corp on the Western Front. I have painted 28th Battalion flashes on his shoulders. The 28th Battalion was raised in Western Australia. On Anzac Day I remember two grandfathers who served with the Australian Infantry in WWII. One was with 2/28th Battalion, seeing action in the Middle East, New Guinea and Borneo. The other was with 28th Battalion seeing action in New Britain. Thanks to all Australians that have served this great country. Least we forget.

Paul, My great Uncle was with the 28th Battalion in France and died there in 1917.

Nice work on the digger and thankyou for sharing.

As you know I was in the regular army for 27 years and yesterday I spent the time painting Japanese.

Thanks for your service Helen. I appreciate it.

I just ordered those Digger packs from Brigade. Bruce from Coy B is sending me 18 heads to convert over. I will have some spares to mess around with some great War figures. I hope they fit!

I am looking forward to viewing your japs.
