British

Line Company (Far East)

 

~1941 to 1942~

.

The Company represents the sort of force that might have fought the Japanese in either Burma or Malaya/Singapore during the period where it seemed that nothing could stop the "Yellow Peril" from marching all the way to Bombay! As such, it is a mix of troops, both British and "Indian", all working together to fight their way through to safety.

 

I have only included those figures painted specifically to represent troops fighting in the Far East: obviously in any wargame the figures below could be augmented by figures from my BEF force (c.f.).
