Lead in the air

Legendary Manx broadcaster and journalist Terry Cringle brought a little something to the office for me to look at today, a fabulously detailed and painted lead figurine of a WWI infantry soldier, complete with all his kit - and bayonet fixed for action! This hurriedly shot phone pic really doesn't do him justice.

The figure is courtesy of Terry's huge collection. He has a keen interest in the Great War and the tank battle at Cambrai where Gilbert was injured, and has very kindly offered his voice for narration on Gilbert's War. It's all coming together wonderfully.
