BEING RETIRED IN 2003
NELSON”S NAVY and THE ROYAL NAVY are sailing off into the sunset and their
days are numbered.
HOWEVER we will not be retiring the ever-popular 9 pc Royal Marine Drum and
Bugle Corps. That will continue to be available.
THREE other series are also being retired this year…
MARINES ON PARADE…and THE WEST. That’s the bad news!
The good news is that all three are being completely redesigned, re-sculpted
and re-launched later in 2003.
They are part of a huge upgrading of style and quality being undertaken in
2003 and onwards.
So, get what you can of the existing ones but look out for the new ones
later in 2003.
Best Wishes and Happy Collecting,
