British infantry squads were made up of 10 men organized around the Bren light machinegun, and consisted of a machinegun group, formed by the second-in-command, machine gunner and loader, and a rifle group made up of 6 riflemen. The squad leader commanded both groups.

The infantry uniform was marked by the distinctively shaped Mark II helmet, while the so-called Battledress of short wool jacket, leggings and boots was worn by all branches of the army. A denim version of the same battledress was worn in summer months, while leather jerkins were used in winter. Tank crews initially wore the same khaki battledress with the addition of a black beret, but in the later stage of the war this was largely supplanted by coveralls.

Kit features:

  • Accurate uniforms and equipment;
  • Includes 8 British infantry, including 3 newly moulded figures not available in 1/35 scale;
  • 4 tank crewmen,
  • 3 Bren gun carrier crewmen including driver (torso only);
  • 1 civilian farmer for use in dioramas.
