Introducing the Admiral Douglas Buccleah

Yes here is the first of the personalities of the Very British Civil War in Scotland and it is Admiral Douglas-Buccleah. He is a veteran of Jutland  and the naval war in the Great War and has come to the aid of the Scottish Republic, leading forces and organising defences. He is wearing the full dress naval uniform of the time with a wonderfully ornate sword. He has dropped the wearing of the Admiral's cocked hat in favour of the tin helmet. Si here he is.

Admiral Douglas-Buccleah,
Commander of Scottish Republic
1938

  2. He's a fine looking chap there all in blue. That's a great pose you put him in, hands behind back like he's going to step right out of the page.
