DID, B11011, 1/6 WWI British Infantry Lance Corporal - William
After eight years, WWI series finally comes back. This time we will bring you WWI British Infantry Lance Corporal William.
William is dressed in WWI British infantry uniform with genuine leather jerkin on the top and Brodie helmet on his head. The Smoke PH hood/P helmet and a small box respirator are ready while he needs poisonous protection gears. Military cloak may be a fashion item now, but at that time it was a necessity on the battlefield.
William is equipped with Lee-Enfield Rifle S.M.L.E 303, the main firearm that used by British army during WWI. Also the1907 pattern S.M.L.E bayonet is included, which could be attached on the rifle.
A full range of classic WWI British Army accessories are also included for William, such as WWI pattern 1908 haversack, P08 webbing ammo pouches, P08 entrenching tool with carrier, P08 water bottle with carrier and D-shaped mess tin with cover, etc.

I concur with tony. there are so many inconsistancies with this figure,
1 he is wearing a 1914 configuration of webbing. lacking the extra straps on the left hand ammo pouches, he would not have had a Brodie helmet. I have learnt a lot from tony and from reading books, you could say I was an expert on 08 webbing, uniforms and insignia I leave to tony the godfather of 1/6, his ph satchels are amazing. if ever I need info on badges and ranks my first port of call is tony. I have studied ww1 and visited all the battlefields.
ok so this figure looks like a mish mash of 1914/16 totally rubbish and inaccurate as tony will undoubtly sayt, the rank chevrons are crap ensign do amazing rank insignia, tony does amazing badges.
the webbing can be rectified using tonys ww1 tutorial, I got loads of albert loose webbing and I converted it, BIG TIP use soldier of fortune ww1 blanco to paint the webbing, for the puttees I used an old british army kf shirt.
if you have any questions on how to modify the figure to make it more accurate just ask I will be more than happy to share my modelling techs with you
