en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/100_Greatest_Britons

This is a list of the top 100 greatest Britons. Maybe something off the list?

SetPhasersTaeMalkie Thu 30-Mar-17 18:16:42

I've had a proper look at the list. What about one of the Beatles?

Would they dress up as a soldier?
Without the countless soldiers who went off to war "GREAT" Britain wouldn't be up to much.
I would be inclined to think of the unsung heroes

DH says that James Bond is what makes Britain Great.

Brunel would be fairly easy or Churchill. One of the Bronte sisters or Jane Austen for a girl?

SetPhasersTaeMalkie Thu 30-Mar-17 18:19:12

Sorry didn't read your OP properly, although your daughter could still be a Beatle!

Keith Chegwin would be epic. Can't believe he wasn't in that 100. He must have been 101st

Or a suffragette?

Boudicca that would be brilliant, a blue face and a long dress and cloak

Phone them up and inform them that they've misunderstood the meaning of 'Great'. It doesn't mean wonderful, successful, etc. It's from 'Greater Britain' as contrasted with 'Little Britain' (not the comedy show). Google it.

Florence Nightingale, Pankhurst,, Boudicca,Thatcher...

Have you got a red tie in the house?
She could go as Tony Blair

Anasnake Thu 30-Mar-17 18:28:33

Definitely a suffragette - Emmeline Pankhurst

Union jack t.shirt and a cheese grater. Tell the child to say you don't pick favourites. Job done

If you've got dungarees, wellies and a headscarf she could be a WW2 Land Girl
