"There will be no Dunkirk here. If we have to get out we will fight our way out. There will be no surrender and no retreat"

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.
