A TOAST Army made from 1,000 identical soldiers has been unveiled at London’s Royal Artillery Museum.
The world-first has been created by charity brand Eggs For Soldiers to mark March Fourth – its annual fundraising event in support of Help for Heroes.
Eggs For Soldiers has raised almost £1m for the charity to date, donating 15p from every box sold. The ‘Toast-A-Cutter Army’ has been made using bespoke toast cutters to create figures that are the perfect size and shape for dipping into boiled eggs. They resemble modern-day soldiers, complete with bed roll, distinctive British Army helmet and combat clothing.
It took a team of five designers more than 16 hours to create by hand using almost 80 loaves of stale bread.
A section of the Toast-A-Cutter Army will go on display at Firepower – The Royal Artillery Museum for the public to view for six weeks from 10th March. 2,000 of the bespoke cutters will be also be given away via the Eggs For Soldiers Facebook page – you can enter the competition at www.facebook.com/eggsforsoldiers
