This set consists of 9 figures with optional heads and 3 extra radios as used by FOO (Forward Observation Officer) and MFC (Mortar Fire Control) and by infantry units. The FOO were assigned to a company or squadron of a battalion or regiment that their battery was supporting. In the British artillery system FOO's were authorised to order fire commands to their own troop or battery, based on their assessment of the tactical situation and if necessary liaison with the supported arm commander. The MFC (Mortar Fire Controller) was an infantry NCO who was part of his battalion's mortar platoon and controlled the platoon's fire in the same way as an FOO. By WW2 radio communication between ground troops and between vehicles including AFV's was essential to support increased mobility for which the previously land-line telephone links were now quite inadequate. Infantry tactics rely on inter communication between elements and British infantry, post D-Day, had a theoretical allocation of radios to Platoon level with No.18 sets, and to Company level, with No.38 sets at platoon level. The technology available at that time was unreliable and there were never enough radios available as breakages were common often due to the necessary man-handling they received in the field. At Company level and above, radios were often kept either static or in vehicles such as the 8cwt CMP HUW vans (see kit UK185) where practical.
