Hi Karl,

Thanks for the link. He also features on the front of The Canadian Soldier (Jean Bouchery) and on page 118 of the same book.

Hi Roman,

Thanks I'll add that in.

It's possible we might see a few more figures from ITA in the future.

Cheers

Al

I believe the sculpt depicts Harold Marshall; a Canadian Sniper during the war.

He died 2 weeks ago at the age of 94.

Hi John,

Missed you post, sad news indeed. Time is catching up on so many.

I got a little work done on the figure but used the more generic mix.
