Active from 1941-45, the 8th Army has become synonymous with the Allied fight in the Western Desert. Seeing action in the Tunisian, Sciliian and Italian campaigns, the soldiers of the 8th Army fought a very different battle to the forces in Normandy and the Far East. Large expanses of desert and the often close fought clashes that evolved around what few objectives there may be, created a different soldier to the battles of Burma or Western Europe.
However, still at the core of the 8th was the stalwart of all armies – the rifleman. Even if his uniform may differ from those of his fellows in other theatres, the trust .303 Lee Enfield did as well in the desert as anywhere else, and were it not for the khaki shorts clad Tommy, there would have been no victory in the desert.
The unit consists of 1x soldier with Bren gun and 4x soldiers with rifles.
