    Wow, what an interesting man! I agree with William, I think one of these soldiers would be excellent to have, what a great way to teach young kids about the ww1 battlefields. There is something nice about taking something that was designed to kill and turning it into something as innocent as a small toy soldier, a really terrific idea. A shame the world has lost this bloke.

    RIP
    What a nice gesture to donate all proceeds of the limited series lead soldier to the monument.

    Very poignant also that the mould would be embedded in the base of the monument.

    Somehow very fitting ...
