Is this an icon?

Britain's Deetail Toy Soldiers

Britain's Deetail Toy Soldiers were a flagship line of plastic toy soldiers from the English toy manufacturer. They were painted plastic soldiers with lime green (and other colours) metal stands and were produced from the early seventies to the early nineties and could be found all over the world. I have at various times found them in Greece, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, the Middle East, Italy, etc. These soldiers WERE England for me and even the manufacturer's name, Britain, reeks Anglophilia.

I have always had a passion for these soldiers since 1977. Back then they were about 80 Australian cents each, which was a lot. I have now picked up well over 130. Can anyone tell me if were they all made in 1971, or were there other production years too? ([email protected])

I believe rice, peas and jerk chicken is an Icon of England.
