DD371 Winston S. Churchill



This figure and pose were suggested by a famous photograph of the great man taken sometime during the ‘Darkest Hour’ of 1940 following the defeat of France, the evacuation at Dunkirk and as the Spitfires and Hurricanes of the Royal Air Force were battling the might of Hitler’s Luftwaffe for the skies over Southern Britain.
Winston Churchill, cradling a Thompson Submachine Gun, the fabled ‘Chicago Piano’, looks confident and happy as he puffs on one of his famous cigars and ready to take on all-comers. Down by his side is an equally defiant and pugnacious little British Bulldog… Both are ready for battle come what may!
