The wonderful Scibor Miniatures sculpt of the Polish Boy Scout, WW2 Warsaw Uprising 1944, IMO, bears a striking resemblance to Edward VIII and makes me think of using it as an offspring of his a new Prince of Wales and leader of the last ditch defence of Madresfield Court, a stately home near Worcester where the King held court.

King Edward is claimed to have fathered an illegitimate son his godson, David Anthony "Tony" Chisolm (1921-1987). Chisholm bore a striking resemblance to the king (who was known to family and friends as David) and various other members of the royal family. (See below for photos of both of them.)

I like the idea of a Prince of Wales Lifeguard fighting it out and using the last Nazi stick grenade in the process.

But the sculpt is 1/35 scale and won't work with 28mm. Ho hum!

Excellent sculpt though.

Great story, thanks for sharing this.

Note that Siberian miniatures make a range of Polish Boy Scouts from the Russo Polish war. You might find a suitable replacement, if not a whole squad of youth for your prince of Wales and his lifeguard.

I have bought figures from this company and they are very nice. I plan to get the Boy Scouts pretty soon for my VBCW army.
