Said to be based on a wartime newspaper strip cartoon, the ‘Our Gang’ ceramic figures, produced by the Bovey Pottery, Devon, were the result of a collaboration between a sculptor, Gwynneth Cobden Holt (1909-1995) and an architect and historian, Fenton Wyness (1903-1974) who became a consultant for the Bovey Pottery in 1940.

The cast of characters eventually extended to nineteen, comprising Churchill - The Boss, Roosevelt, Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Aussie, Nurse, Warden, Land Girl, Fireman, WAAF, New Zealander, Private, Highlander, Sergeant, Pilot, Captain, Sailor and Major.
