    King and Country FOB010






    In the system-specific allotment if duties, each member of the crew is dependent on the other for all to survive a tank duel together. During operations, the crew lives in and with the tank, not only during combat, but also before and after. Four crew members of the Char B1 bis had very complicated duties, even when the crews are expertly trained, the duties tasked to each role did not allow for tactical efficiency in real combat conditions.

    FOB010 Char B1 Bis (2006 Version) (King and Country FOB010)





    "Another fighting vehicle which sold out its original run is our first-even French tank – the CHAR B 1bis (FOB009). We are producing 250 additional models of this unique tank but in a modified paint scheme with a new ‘name’ and a revised tank commander."

    At the start of the war, France had one of the largest tank forces in the world along with the Soviet, British and German forces. The French had planned for a defensive war and built tanks accordingly; infantry tanks were designed to be heavily armoured.

    Among the most powerfully armed and armoured tanks of its day, the Char B1 bis was very effective in direct confrontations with German armour in 1940 during the Battle of France (where the German PaK anti-tank guns could not penetrate its frontal armor beyond the range of 100m). However slow speed and high fuel consumption of the Char B1 bis and coupled with poor French tank doctrines made it ill-adapted to that war fought in 1940.

    Weight - 28.0 tonnes
    Length - 6.37 m
    Width - 2.46 m
    Height - 2.79 m
    Crew - 4
    Armour - 60 mm
    Main Armament - 75 mm ABS SA 35 howitzer (Hull) and 47 mm SA 35 (Turret)
    Operational Range - 200 km
    Speed - 28 km/h (road) 21 km/h (off-road)






    The Char B1 (and the later Char B1 "bis" which is an upgraded variant with thicker armour) was a French heavy tank manufactured before World War 2. It was a specialised heavy break-through vehicle, originally conceived as a self-propelled gun with a 75 mm howitzer in the hull; later a 47 mm gun in a turret was added at the later stages of the design - to allow it to function also as a Char de Bataille, a "battle tank" fighting enemy armour.

    Starting in the early twenties, its development and production were repeatedly delayed, resulting in a vehicle that was both technologically complex and expensive, and already obsolescent when real mass-production of a derived version, the Char B1 "bis", started in the late thirties.

    The Phoney War was an eight-month period at the start of World War II, during which there were no major military land operations on the Western Front between the Allies armies of France, Great Britain against Germany from 3 September 1939 till 10 May 1940.









    During this period, Poland was overrun in about five weeks by the Germans in the Invasion of Poland beginning on 1 September 1939 - the Western Allies did nothing. In French this period is also referred to as the drôle de guerre ("funny" or "strange" war).

    (The Renault R-35 images can be found here)







    One single Char B1 was able to destroy thirteen German tanks within a few minutes in Stonne on 16 May 1940, all of them Panzer III and Panzer IV tanks. The 37mm and 20mm anti-tank guns the Germans used were ineffective at penetrating the thick armour of the B1.











    In the end the French were not done in by the quality of tanks fielded during World War Two - but by their mismanagement of armored forces in the Battle of France.

    FOB061 For You Fritz The War is Over! (King and Country FOB061)





    "When the Luftwaffe began to attack the British Isles they also began to suffer much greater losses... thanks to the brave fighter pilots of the Royal Air Force. Here, a young, arrogant Luftwaffe airman has had his aircraft shot down... over Southern England. In this little scene he is closely guarded by an old Army Veteran now in the uniform of the "Home Guard"... Dad's Army... Standing, notebook in hand, a typical unarmed British "Bobby" is taking down details of the captured pilot... A great little 3-man set..."




    The large size image of the Home Guard....

















    The Home Guard (initially "Local Defence Volunteers" or LDV) was a defence organisation of the British Army during the Second World War. It composed of 1.5 million local volunteers otherwise ineligible for military service, such as those too young or too old to join the services, or those in reserved occupations - hence the nickname "Dad's Army".

    The Home Guard role was to act as a secondary defence force, in case of invasion by the forces of Germany. They were to try to slow down the advance of the enemy, even by a few hours in order to give the regular forces time to regroup. The Home Guard continued to guard the coastal areas of the United Kingdom and other important places such as airfields, factories and explosives stores until late 1944.





    The large size image of the Luftwaffe Aircrew....

















    The Battle of Britain was one of the most pivotal moments in WW2 - it marked a turning point when Britain stood alone against Germany's seemingly unstoppable military power.

    In the summer of 1940 – after Germany swept through France and drove the British army out of the European mainland the Luftwaffe (German Air Force) launched a large scale attack, intent on wiping out Britain's air defences.

    Most of the German aircrew shot down over England gave themselves up immediately while some asked to be taken to a military post where they could officially surrender to the authorities. A small number could speak good English, some could manage a few words that would help them to be understood, but most, could not speak the English language.










    One thought on this quick surrender was that many of the German aircrew were of the belief that the Germany invasion of England was very close and that they would only be held captive for a short period of time before being liberated back to Germany. Many German captured aircrews have mentioned about the conditions that they had to live under as a POW (Prisoner of War) - though there was a certain amount of regimentation they were treated fairly, had good food and plenty of freedom.

    The large size image of the British "Bobby"....

















    On the eve of the war there were just under 20,000 police officers in London alone. In addition to their usual tasks of keeping the peace, pursuing criminals, making sure that the traffic flowed freely, they had new duties – enforcing the wartime blackout, assisting the rescue services during and after bombing raids, checking on enemy aliens in the country and even pursuing army deserters.....

    A picture from the past......








    A Luftwaffe officer speaks with a British policeman in St Helier, the capital of the island of Jersey, during the German occupation of the Channel Islands. The islands were the only part of the British Isles to be invaded by the Germans.






    Occupied by Germany for most of the Second World War, from 30 June 1940 until their liberation on 9 May 1945 the Channel Islands were the only part of Britain to be occupied by the German Army during the war.
