Description
In the final year of the Anzac Centenary, and a year in which the world will unite on 11 November to remember the 100th anniversary of Armistice, let these adorable Australia in the Great War bears help Australians, young and old, connect to the stories and times we remember.

The first ever Australia in the Great War Australian Flying Corps Bear is ready for take-off. Lieutenant Thomas Hendy celebrates the early days of Australian military aviation. Australia was the only dominion of the British Empire to establish its own flying corps for service in the Great War and some 460 officers and 2,234 other ranks served in the Middle East, over the Western Front, and in training schools in England. All pilots of the A.F.C. were officers of the Australian Imperial Force. His uniform reflects the full-length leather 'Maternity Pattern' flying jacket and leather flight helmet worn to provide warmth during flights in open cockpit aeroplanes. The large angled external pocket on the left-breast provided quick access to maps.
Lieutenant Hendy stands 40cm, is Limited to just 5,000 bears and comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
