WWI The Footballer (Ben Butler)


  • Model: TG-GW064A
  • 1 Units in Stock
  • Manufactured by: Thomas Gunn Miniatures

The Footballer: Albert 'Ben' Butler was in the Pals Battalion the 17th Middlesex which was known as the First Footballers Battalion. He played professional for Reading & Queens Park Rangers before enlisting, unfortunately he was wounded by enemy shelling in 1916 and like so many young men died from his wounds. Our figure of Butler denotes him in a relaxed pose with a football, perhaps remembering happier days before he enlisted? Limited to 100 figures worldwide.
