FW230 - Private John ‘Barney’ Hines

$45.00

Details

John ‘Barney’ Hines (1878-1958) was a British-born Australian soldier of The Great War. He was well-known for his skills and prowess at collecting ‘souvenirs’ from captured German Soldiers.

The best-known Australian images of the First World War is certainly a photo of ‘Barney’ depicting him surrounded by his German acquisitions after the Battle of Polygon Wood in 1917.

This was the inspiration for this K&C figure which shows ‘Barney’ complete with ‘pickelhaub’ helmet (a much-prized souvenir for WW1 soldiers and collectors) and other bits ‘n’ bobs of German equipment. This figure also shows ‘Barney’ taking a closer look at some saucy French postcards that he has ‘liberated’ from a German prisoner!
