Britain’s figures

Britain’s figures have been a source of pleasure to collectors for the last hundred years, but where did father William get his information and inspiration from?

John Tunstill, after several years of patient research, and with reference to his collection of Victorian prints and early reference works of a military nature, and also his modest collection of Britains’ figures has discovered The Origin of the Species, with due reference to a certain Mr Darwin.

Many of these early prints that inspired William Britain are now being scanned, and, together with many illustrations from the 70’s, will form the basis of the military print collection soon to be made available on the site www.soldierssoldiers.com.
