Sir Percival Thirlwall, standard bearer to King Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485 (Pegaso Models). Legend has it that Percival held the banner aloft even after having his legs cut out from under him. It didn't help the Yorkists in the end, though, as they were defeated and the reign of the Tudors began.

    Yes Tina, he was a true Yorkist and that's where he belongs although I have to sympathise with Leicester as without their hard work and diligence he would still be lost. Also the city of Gloucester loved him as their Duke.
