Private Herbert Last was a Soldier during WW1. Unfortunately  he was killed in action aged just 24. This bear is named after him.
This little Soldier Bear is approximately 31/2 inches tall and made from a blonde mohair ' He only has one eye, which is light brown , high up on his head like the original Soldier Bears that peeped out of the Soldier's pocket.Where the other eye would have been it is stitched to look like he has lost the eye over the years and an embroidered one but in it's place. He has a stitched nose and comes wearing a red,white and blue sash  with a "hope" charm attached to it by a rusty old safety pin. 

Herbert is fully cotter pin jointed and stuffed with kapok, used in the making of early bears. He has steel shot in his body for added weight. I have plucked his fur, shaded and waxed him and added faux stitches to give him the appearance of a "well loved" bear.
