Enjoy them Mark they grow up quick, I have a little WW1 WW2 museum in the spare bedroom, and my granddaughter who was 6 then (she's 18 now), would would come in and wear the helmets and would salute, and say Tommy would like a cup of tea, my other three I've taken them to a few reenactment events, this year I'm taken them over to Ypres, yes they did ask if I would.

Regards
