This box contains:
1 petty officer with SMG
2-man Lewis Gun LMG team
7 sailors with rifles (3 with Molotov cocktails)
As the Second World War progressed this role would also be taken on by Khaki-uniformed Royal Navy Commando or Royal Marine sections though naval shore parties were still in action throughout the war.
Clad in their dark blue uniforms and 1908 pattern webbing these Jack Tars will provide a dash of colour to an otherwise khaki British force.
