Welcome to Britains Toy Soldier

As a young boy I had hundreds of toy soldiers, the majority of which were airfix, but my favorites were the Britains Deetail silver Knights and Turks. As my childhood disappeared, so did my soldiers, sold long before ebay came into existence and consigned to memory up until my good wife stumbled upon an abandoned Apache tribe in a charity shop. The Apache's where of course meant for my children but I felt they were far to precious to waste on them. Interest rekindled, I started to buy some more and quickly realised I didn't have a clue what I was looking for, or what was a fair price, which is what has led to this website.


This website is very much work in progress, though the aim is to provide as much documentation on every Britain ever produced, however, the starting point is to document the Deetail figures. I hope you find it useful, and if you do spot any errors or can provide further information on content I would be happy to hear from you.


In addition to the cataloguing of each and every figure I've started to monitor and publish the prices the figures are fetching on ebay (UK only for now) which should act as a useful guide for all collectors.
