For anyone who doesn't know the story of the Soldier Bears, during World War One many British Soldiers used to be given a little bear by their sweethearts and loved ones. These bears had eyes that were high up on their heads which peeped out of the soldiers' top pockets. This is one of my versions of these little bears. Tommy Womack was a Soldier during WW1 and this bear is named after him.

Tommy is made from old gold mohair that I have plucked and aged to give the appearance of an old well loved bear. He has brown glass eyes, one darker than the other, and a stitched nose. He is approximately 31/2 inches tall  and fully cotter pin jointed. He is filled with kapok, used in the making of early bears, and has steel shot in his body for added weight.

Tommy wears a tatty red,white and blue sash tied together with a rusty looking safety pin with a "hope" charm around his neck.
