Grey Wilson – Greatcoat Bear

$99.00

Sergeant Wilson wears one of the most iconic and versatile uniform items of the Great War – the A.I.F. Greatcoat. Before service abroad most Australian troops had never seen snow or ground ice, and the chilly winters added to the hardships men faced at Gallipoli, in the deserts and on the Western Front. The Greatcoat was essential protection. The heavy woollen khaki coat weighed about 6.5 pounds (3kgs) and served as an outer jacket, additional blanket and often as a shelter. Grey also has his Brodie helmet and anti-gas mask carry bag at the ready. Limited to just 5,000 bears for worldwide collectors, Grey comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
