Footnotes

  • CONTENT NOTE

    Set 130 included a number of figures with positions not issued in other sets of Scots Guards:
    Mounted officer on swayback horse
    Standing officer with binoculars
    Empty handed officers with brown gloves
    Standing, kneeling and lying firing
    Marching at the slope, bayonets not fixed
    Running at the trail
    Buglers
    The only figures that could not be obtained as one or other of the Foot Guard regiments were (until 1940 in set 1908) the standing officer with binoculars, the officer in gaiters with the empty hand, and the marching men with no bayonet fixed.

    The advantage of issuing this mammoth 118 piece set of Foot Guards as Scots Guards was that with the minimum of embellishment, as here, any figure but the pipers could be converted to one of the other four regiments of Foot Guards. As the numbers of standing firing, kneeling firing and marching with fixed bayonets present exceed the number normally present in set 130, it is likely either that there are elements of sets 34, 75, and 120 included in this lot, or that there are present the remnants of two sets 130, as there are two each of the marching officers.
