Last of the Royalists
Here is the last of the Royalists that I am doing for Solway's latest book Armies and Enemies of the Scottish Republic. This chap is actually the commander of the British Union of Fascists for Scotland, 2nd Commander Ernest Smallbottom. Being a ex bank manager type, drawn your own conclusions there, I have aimed for the arrogant, pompous look, associated with a man who thinks he has more power than he actually has. He is wearing the Action Press Uniform of the BUF and piped dark blue as identification for Scotland. If anyone can think of a good name for the dog I would be chuffed as I am thinking "Mosley".
