Stretcher Bearers

BMC Plastic Army Women, with pistol.
Throwing a grenade and firing a rifle from the kneeling position. While the M14was in service in the late 1950s and 1960s women were not allowed in combat occupational specialties, they were trained in the use of small arms.  Being a soldier is always dangerous no matter what your job in war.  The grenade thrower figure is an Amazon, a bit larger than the others, and I like that because people are different sizes too.
Stretcher team.  Either carrier can be in the front or rear.
Nice detail on the figures.
Note the Red Cross on the helmet, that's not a purse, it's a aid bag.  Note also the eye glasses.
Good vignette.
