Soldiers of Greater Britain
SKU: 90003

Examines the early years of Britains Ltd. production from 1893 to 1924.

This intensively researched work answers questions about the early mechanical toys, "ancient" W.Britain figures, sources of their designs, the accuracy of their models, the small-size B Series, the little-known Paris Office, and Fred Whisstock's wonderful box labels. Soldiers of Greater Britain, along with my earlier Armies of the World (1925-1941) and Regiments of All Nations (1946-1966) provides a thorough and authoritative record of W.Britain traditional lead lines.

William Britain, W. Britain or simply Britain's, no matter what we are called our name is synonymous with toy soldiers. Since 1893 W. Britain has been producing toy soldiers and military miniatures with attention to detail, quality and authenticity. Each model figure is cast out of metal and hand painted to the highest possible standards. Our ranges include traditional toy style figures in 1/32 scale (54mm / 2.125" tall) and a large selection of realistic matte finished figures in 1/30 scale (58mm / 2.3125" tall). Most major time periods are covered from the eighteenth century up to the conflicts of the twentieth century. Whatever your interest, W. Britain has figures and accessories for your collection!
