This looks like a Will Young figure and it's from Widecombe but I don't recognise the inscribed monogram - all I can find online are painted marks. Any suggestions, please?

Oh, I know that there are plenty of similar examples on eBay, Google, etc.; not just Bill Brewer but all the Widecombe Fair characters. It's just that inscribed monogram that I've not come across before.

I may be wrong but I think his son now makes them. Or maybe I misheard that

Will Young died in 1995 and his son, Alan, who was producing the figures in France, died in 2011.
