British Infantrymen, World War 2
Clones/recasts of the Matchbox WW2 British infantry. When I was a kid, I'd tag along with my mom when she went to the wet/dry market of our town. Down the dry goods area were a few stalls selling general merchandise and plastics such as plates, stools, bins, pails, etc. Plastic toys such as these toy soldiers were kept in large sacks and bins and were sold per scoop of a large "tabo" -- a large, bowl-like water dipper. There are still a few places here that sell toys in that manner, mainly of recast plastic. I'll try to take a picture or at least find one I took some time ago.
