Hi guys and Happy Father's Day as well!

Here are just a few quick pics of my latest figure, one of Pershing's Doughboys, Lt Terry Davies, A.E.F. France 1918. Next up will be Sir Nigel Hawkins, British explorer/Adventurer late 1800's Africa.

The American Expeditionary Force (AEF) began arriving in France inJune 1917. By March 1918 there are 250,000 U.S. soldiers in France; this number increases to 1 million by July and to 2 million by November. Two-thirds will see action, in 29 Divisions.

U.S. Army Mobilized: 4,355,000
U.S. Army War Dead (overseas & domestic):
Killed in action: 36,931
Died of wounds: 13,673
Died of disease: 62,668
Other: 6,872
Total dead: 120,144
Total wounded: 198,059
Total casualties: 318,203
Prisoners of war and missing: 4,500

The Meuse-Argonne Offensive was the largest U.S. engagement. It began 26 September 1918 and ended 11 November 1918. In the three weeks fighting, the battle deaths of Americans numbered 18,000, a daily average of about 1,000.

Thanks!

Hi Kenneth and thanks so much!!

Really glad you liked him! The nude is the neo3 British ww2 figure 'Terry Davies', its a really nice hs and i love the posing of the neo3. The tunic, helmet, mapcase, gasmask bag and mask, is from SS, the rest is dml except for the .45 which is diecast and the breeches are DiD.

Really glad you liked the bat as well, a neighbor handmade it for me and i dont think any Germans would want to be on the receiving end of that! Thanks Kenneth!!

Hi Blain and thank you very much!! Really glad you enjoyed the figure and expecially the bat, i thought it would be something cool and unique for him to have also, and not impossible either since just about anything and everything were used in the trenches.
Thanks Blain!!
