Tin soldier standing on the St. Crispian’s Day speech from Shakespeare’s Henry the Fifth. This speech is an extraordinarily beautiful piece of propaganda, and an early example of the trope about “you cowards are free to leave at any time”, a required trope in most war films.

I have also used this tin soldier as inspiration for a t-shirt.
