The outbreak of the Great War in 1914 had a marked impact on the humble Teddy Bear. Until the war most of Europe and England's Teddy Bears were sourced from Germany. With supplies cut off, English manufacturers stepped up, and in doing so added an English flavour to the Teddy Bear. Bears have changed much over the years but they remain a symbol of affection and hope.
Private Murray - the diggers' bear - is especially created for the
'Australia in the Great War 1914-1918 Collection'. Modelled on the softer
style English bear, his uniform is the 1912 design worn by diggers in

Military Forces slouch hat proudly worn by the Australian Army since
