Para during the Falklands War
This is a Maurice Corry Figure depicting a member of the Parachute regiment during the Falklands conflict. The only addition that I have added is the British Flag on a wire. It is a bit of artistic licence as the wire is coming from behind the poncho roll on his webbing whereas in the famous picture from the conflict the flag is hung from a wire protruding from a bed roll and the soldier is wearing his beret. However it is in my opinion such a powerful image, I wanted to replicate it in some way.
