The British Dominions played an important and gallant role with Britain’s own army on the Western Front. Australia was one of the first to “answer the call” of the Mother Country and send troops to fight, first in Egypt, then Gallipoli and on to France...Here’s our first batch – 12 figures...10 individual soldiers and one 2-man set...all in action.
Special Note: These 12 figures are in a choice of 3 Separate Infantry Battalions from the Australian States of Victoria...Queensland...and New South Wales.
Additional Note: The three Battalions featured are as follows:
1st Infantry Battalion (New South Wales): Shoulder Patch: Black over Green on both shoulders
8th Infantry Battalion (Victoria): Shoulder Patch: White over Red.
9th Infantry Battalion (Queensland):Shoulder Patch : Black over Light Blue.
All three fought with distinction at Gallipoli before moving to France and the Western Front and fighting there for the remainder of the war as part of the Australian First Infantry Division.
