While working on my Belgican forces for 1951 I came across these old Matchbox figures, painted up in high gloss “toy soldier” style as two “platoon” sized groups for the Second World War. Germans are in 1940 style uniforms and British in battledress, probably more appropriate to 1943 onwards.

Weapon allocation was decided by available models, hence the British have far more vickers MGs than expected, but no Bren guns. German MGs have no No.2, so reloading could be an issue. Both British and Germans are bizarrely equipped with American bazookas. The Germans have loaders for these, the British none.

Who cares? They are toys. It’s a game.
