A Bronze Figure of a First World War Infantryman

Mid 20th Century

Measurements: Overall: 30cm (12in)



Marching infantryman equipped with slung Short Magazine Lee Enfield rifle and ammunition bandolier for an extra 100 rounds worn from left shoulder, and laden with pack, haversack, water-bottle, entrenching tool carriers for head (beneath pack) and helve (attached to the bayonet scabbard), all suspended from the ‘Pattern 1908 Web Infantry Equipment’ worn over a leather jerkin. Stylised dragon cap badge perhaps indicates The Buffs, while the absence of steel Brodie helmet might suggest a volunteer of Kitchener’s New Army circa 1915-16. Height of figure 25cm (9.5in). On ebonised base.
