These look great! I am very interested in a set of these, even though I am not interested in the tanks.

Darren The BEF was mentioned, 1908 webbing was used in 1940 but were'nt the uniforms different? Did any Regiments still use the SMLE in 1940 France? Thanks Geraint

Hi Geraint,

Yes, the SMLE was used in 1940 both in France and the desert.

I suppose the Tamiya figs could be intermixed with Dragon's BEF troops for a 1940 setting?
