Destination Stanley


A great little set of THREE additional ‘Bootnecks’ (R.M. slang for Royal Marines) yomping their way across East Falklands on their way towards Stanley. Each Marine carried over 80 pounds of equipment and supplies as well as their personal weapons and extra ammunition. Originally the Marines and Paras had expected to be transported forward by helicopters, but after the ‘Atlantic Conveyor’ which carried these aircraft was sunk the troops had to march across the island carrying everything on their backs. K&C’s 3 X ‘Booties’ are carrying an assortment of weapons... The ever-reliable L1A1 SLR (Self Loading Rifle), the venerable L4 Bren LMG (Light Machine Gun) and the Belgian – designed, British-built L7A2 GPMG (General Purpose Machine Gun). All naturally are in their standard British military DPM uniform and proudly wearing their green commando berets.

The Flagbearer
The FlagbearerProbably the most iconic image of the Falklands War on land is the photo taken by Petty Officer Peter Holdgate, a Commando Forces Photographer while accompanying British forces ‘yomping’ towards Port Stanley during the war. At one point on the march one of the Royal Marines attached a small ‘Union Jack’ to the radio antenna of another Marine’s field radio. This simple, straight forward image of a long line of British fighting men marching towards their objective and ‘flying the flag’ seemed to represent the kind of grit, courage and determination of Britain itself to recapture the Falklands and liberate its small, captive population from a cruel, despotic south American dictatorship. King & Country’s initial offering is our portrayal in miniature of this lone Royal Marine ‘yomping’ towards eventual victory and defying all odds. Additional Falklands War Royal Marines will be released in early 2022 while others, including the famous ‘Red Berets’ and some Argentinians are already ‘in the works’. Released: 2021.12Retired:
