    I like him, if you had any annoying neighbours I think he'd be a useful tool, you could pop him up outside their windows in his gasmask and give them the fright of their lives!

    I had thought of wearing the helmet and gas mask, knocking on the neighbours door and yelling "gas gas gas" but thought better of it! Herman is like a family memeber, his uniform is based on photos of my great uncles who were Heer. He gets introduced to all our visitors, as I had a mate stay the night once, got up in the middle of the night and went into the room and freaked out when he saw Herman....ever seen and Iraq and Afghan vet run screaming thru a house!

    Must have been quite a sight, although to be fair I think if I woke up in the middle of the night and saw him unexpectedly my reaction might be the same!
