WWI Tropical Troops
In the 1930s until the 1970s stories about Europeans and American in "jungle" lands were very popular.
Not just Tarzan, but Lance Hale, and Ka Zar and others were popular stories in those days.
Often they were in or near British colonial possessions.
And so having a few troops for those regions is a must for any collection that contains the Airfix Tarzan set.
The brave British lads arrive just in the nick of time to save the safari from certain destruction by the leopard men.
Or Tarzan arrives at the fort to save the troops from certain destruction at the treacherous hand of Abu Zymbal.
