Toy Soldiers - Scottish Regiments

Continuing the occasional series of pictures of Toy Soldiers.

These toy soldiers are available to view in the Toys and Memorabilia Collection at Bletchley Park. There are hundreds of Toy Soldiers on display in this collection but their presentation is a little 'messy'. There are plenty of labels but these tend to be at the front of the shelves and are dissociated with the figures they are labelling, making identification difficult. This is a great pity because the collection on display is very comprehensive and interesting. These figures are an exception but even here more detailed information is lacking.

Scottish Regiments (The Toys and Memorabilia Collection, Bletchley Park)
These look like William Britain's models (the square base is distinctive) and are presumably part of a set designed to show off the differences in uniform between various Scottish Regiments. Note differences in Sporran and Garter designs as well as the colours of Cuffs and Collars.
