This set came into production following a commission from a customer who had a precise vision of the figures he wished to add to his collection. Hence this unusual but valuable addition to our range. Delivery of the American built M3 (Stuart I) to the British Army, fighting in Egypt, began in 1941. Accompanied by American technical instruction teams, each vehicle came with full US stowage including personal weapons, throat microphones and the early pattern US tankers helmets, etc., Resultantly British Honey Stuart crews initially used this equipment in the Western Desert and photographic evidence confirms their use in Libya with the 8th King's Royal Irish Hussars, 7th Armoured Division. This five figure set therfore consists of the Commanding Officer dressed in the popular Afgan coat with a standard issue leather trench jerkin and a Tent Hat. The other figures consist of a mixture of a Junior Officer wearing a Battledress jacket and woollen jumper and other ranks with a mixture of uniforms. The only other units to widely use the US Tankers helmet (Late pattern) were the Gordon Highlanders of the 116th Tank Regt. attached to the 255th Indian Tank Brigade operating Shermans in Burma in 1945.
