The stoic British Tommy fought the enemy in all conditions – the sweltering jungles of the Far East, the scorching deserts of North Africa and the icy cold winters in Italy and North West Europe. This boxed set contains a section equipped for the colder of these campaigns.
As with most British Commonwealth infantry sections, the British Infantry Section Winter is based around the sustained firepower of the Bren light machine gun, the other infantrymen carrying extra Bren magazines in addition to their own weapons.
Protected from the chill by their thick military grade woollen great coats and tough sleeveless leather jerkins, they also made good use of camouflaged groundsheets as protective capes along with woollen caps, scarves and gloves.
Whether the fight is in the frozen Italian hills and mountains or in the deep winter of France, the low countries or in Germany itself, these cheery British infantrymen can be relied on to do their duty for King and Country!
Contains a 10-man section:
- NCO with SMG
- 1 infantryman with SMG
- 2-man Bren gun LMG team
- 6 riflemen
