I don’t know where my grandfather, who served in WWII, got this figurine from. The Bulldog, symbolizing Churhchill and the British defiance is wearing a British soldier’s ( Brodie or “Tommy helmet” helmet.). Google turned up nearly blank on the subject of the figurine.

Some of my older photos on this site were shot using a Nikon D70 - (using the AF-S DX 18-70mm lens) my first digital, and my first SLR – a wonderful camera that died in the summer of 2008.
I also have a flash unit – the Nikon SB800 that I use sparingly.
