香港保卫战1941

二次大战期间, 当时的英属香港成为加拿大军对抗轴心国的首个战场。1941年12月8日, 两营加拿大军温尼伯榴弹兵团皇家加拿大来复枪团成为英军对抗日军袭港的主力。

 

于偷袭珍珠港, 马来亚, 星加坡及菲律宾后, 不消5天, 新界及九龙半岛已被日军所占领, 并正准备侵占香港岛。

勇气及牺牲

12月9日, 日军与温尼伯榴弹兵团于香港岛起了冲突, 日军包围温尼伯榴弹兵团并向他们投掷手榴弹, 加军军士长约翰·奥士本曾多次将手榴弹投回敌军, 不幸的是, 其中一枚手榴弹着地, 不能及时掷回, 他立刻大叫警告同伴后退, 并以身体掩盖手榴弹, 他的壮烈牺牲, 最终拯救了不少同伴的性命。

约翰·奥士本亦被追颁维多利亚十字勋章, 以表扬他的英勇事迹。

柏林街头

1920至1930年代的冲锋队,不时与示威游行,群众集会,街头战斗,欺凌等名字扯上关系。 其中的代表者是霍斯特·威塞尔。

1930年2月,他被两名左翼刺客枪杀。 他死后由约瑟夫·戈培尔(Josef Goebbels)追授为纳粹事业的“殉教者”,并以歌曲“霍斯特·威塞尔之歌”大肆宣扬。因此“霍斯特·威塞尔之歌”在纳粹时期几乎成为“《德意志高于一切》”后的第二个国歌。

德国装甲掷弹兵

随着战争的延长和德国的实力减弱, 德国士兵的“外观”也发生了重大变化。

由于服装和原材料短缺, 德国军队开始抄袭敌军的服装设计, 看这些装甲掷弹兵的衣着便是证据了, 过去他们穿着传统的长统马靴, 取而代之的是短踝靴和网络式的绑腿, 他们的夹克也改短至腰节位, 这些改变都是抄袭至英军服饰。

本月我们推出以下首五款装甲掷弹兵模型, 他们适合配衬任何二战晚期街头战斗的场景。下一批装甲掷弹兵模型也快将推出, 请密切留意。

“BEING RETIRED THIS MONTH…”

The Mummy's Statue

AE047 “The Mummy’s Statue

A great little display item with lots of detail that can be used primarily in an Ancient Egypt” scenario… or just as well with “Napoleon in Egypt” figures or even WW2’s Afrika Korps or 8th Army. ”

Winter Guards

The M36 'Jackson' Tank Destroyer

DD274 “The M36 ‘Jackson’ Tank Destroyer

Developed towards the end of WW2 the M36 “Jackson” was the most powerful U.S. tank destroyer of its time mounting a massive 90mm gun. It replaced the much weaker M10 which only carried a 76mm gun.

Supplies of the M36 finally began to arrive in the European Theatre of Operations in September 1944 where it immediately proved itself to be more than a match against any of the heavy tanks of the Germans.

It also saw ‘active duty’ in the Korean conflict easily defeating the Russian-supplied armour used by both the North Koreans and the Chinese Red Army.

Even after Korea, M36’s turned up in the former Yugoslavia and saw action in the 1990’s!

Our K&C M36 is painted in typical olive drab finish complete with Allied ‘white star’ and would have certainly took part in The Battle of the Bulge in December ’44 and the drive into Germany in the first 5 months of 1945.

When we released the original “Karl Otto’s Tiger” WS311 back in March 2015 we knew it would be a popular “add-on” to our “Gang of Heroes” set…

And highly popular it proved to be as it quickly sold out ! More than a few collectors however requested that “Karl Otto” should also be released as an individual figure so that he could be used with other K&C German tanks… Well, here he is… minus his Tiger!

Singapore Commando on Parade

SAF001 “Singapore Commando on Parade

The Singapore Armed Forces may be relatively small in numbers but they are highly professional, well motivated and extremely well-equipped and trained.

In addition to the “Regular” full-time soldiers, sailors and airmen … Singapore has ‘National Service’ for all male Singaporeans over the age of 18.

Upon ‘Call-Up’ young Singaporeans will either be directed to the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF), the Singapore Police Force (SPF) or the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF). The vast majority go to the SAF.

Within the SAF the best and most elite unit is the Singapore Commando Formation. A battalion-sized unit that specializes in reconnaissance and preemptive operations in small groups within enemy territory.

Our special Singapore event figure portrays a soldier of the Commando Formation in NO. 1 Dress uniform complete with Red Beret and carrying his SAR21, the 5.56mm Assault Rifle, Singapore designed and manufactured weapon with fixed bayonet.

And that’s the story for December… Let’s hope there’s more than a few K&C things for you under your Christmas Tree this Festive Season!


Best wishes and… Happy Collecting!
