I've been working on this fella while working on the Frenchman to change

The pose will be a bit different and arrangement of the equipment will be also. I'm using the book "World War 1 Infantry In Colour Photographs" for reference and inspiration as well.
His trousers may look a bit "baggy" but I really like the way they turned out.
