Marionette Gallery 1 - The war veteran

With this Gallery idea I would like to introduce you to the characters that make up Strings Attached Puppet Theatre. Like I mentioned before, they are all individuals that come (more or less voluntarily) together to do a performance.
The one legged war veteran was created from my childhood memories. Second World War veterans did not have the level of prosthesis technology that is around today, things were rather simple. So some poor souls had to get by on wooden crutches. He has a friend that had a similar fate, he is in a wheelchair. Both performed in -Fading memories- a play that toured in the 1990s. All about what is remembered, the stories of a veteran, and the memories that are not really fading or are they?
