Metal and plastic figurines by Lassiter, Britain's, Franco, Airfix, Historex from the 1960's, 70's, 80's, some "proper old" metal ones.

I would think there'll be about 4 of these plastic boxes full.

I will post more photos but the whole lot for 30,
collection only from the Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire area.
Excellent buying for 30 pounds. Out of curiosity, do you know what make the United Nations figures are with the blue helmets?

Sounds like your brother was practising his prisoner interrogation technique.
I've still got Cockerney Rabble's "Human Menagerie"

I've found my old wall poster of Ernesto, I used to have it on the wall of my bed space in the army.

The CSM used to do that sergeant major thing during inspections - stand so that he was just visible out of the corner of my eye as I stood at attention, waiting for my nerve to crack and my eyeballs to swivel towards him while he glared at the poster then at me, then the poster, then me, poster, me.......

The poster's lived in lofts and garages for over 40 years, I'll pin it up in my beer shed.

I think they're Britain's, I'll check.

Yes, Britain's, the metal bases are marked "1992".

Some of the Britain's Paras, RM Commandos and SAS figurines, which have a different form of metal base.

Some "Kardsmen", I think they date to around 1979, the 80's.
There are a few more sets of them, all part of OC14's purchase.

Britains, eh? Oh well, I only missed them by 29 years. Might have to do some trawling through 2nd hand sources.

Not really a soldier - maybe he's ex-military?

Some leads, a lot of them damaged, some crudely cast flats and some polythene Highlanders.

Another little boxed kit unearthed, 1960's I think.
I remember making up its companion "The Black Prince" as a kid.
