China fairing modelled as a full length figure
China fairing modelled as a full length figure of a naval rating in the uniform of the Boer War period, on a base inscribed: 'The Handyman'. The hollow figure is coloured naturally and the bearded sailor wears a blue jumper with sailor's collar and lanyard, white trousers and a blue cap lettered 'HMS Terrible'. He stands in front of a gun, holding the open breech of the gun with his left hand and gesturing with the right. The figure commemorates the landing of the Naval Brigades in South Africa and the defence of Ladysmith in 1899. The title refers to a poem by Harold Begbie in the Navay and Army Illustrated, 20 December 1899.
