Thanks Dal!

Had a nightmare posing those and getting the hard hand figures to try and hold something is quite something!

How did kids manage with them back in the day? Mind you, a couple of youngsters like us wouldn't know eh Dal? We had grippers as kids.  lol! lol!

More fine examples of toy history under the large Action Man umbrella! It's also nice to see the clean cut 40ths making a show Cool

Why do I feel that was a thinly veiled insult to some of us more 'seasoned' collectors who had to struggle with proper VAM with proper hands, not those girly grippers!!

Great shots of the troops on their 1st manoeuvres in sunny Kent.

Great looking combat soldiers! This is possibly the quintessential PH Joe. Here's mine on watch after a snow storm.





Vintage red-torso Joe figure, webbing and uniform, 40th jacket and boots either VAM or Defenders helmet.
