Moved by Conflict: Object 7: Old Bill

Old Bill was a character created by cartoonist Bruce Bairnsfather in 1914-15. He was an elderly, moustachioed pipe-smoking British ‘Tommy’ and was very popular during the First World War. This bust was reputed to have been made to fix to a car bonnet. (ref TD5398)
