Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery inspecting British and Belgian troops

Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery inspecting British and Belgian troops at the Battle of the Scheldt (1–8 November 1944). The Battle of the Scheldt in World War II was a series of military operations led by the First Canadian Army, with Canadian, Polish and British units attached, to open up the shipping route to Antwerp so that its port could be used to supply the Allies in north-west Europe. Under acting command of the First Canadian's Lieutenant-General Guy Simonds, the battle took place in northern Belgium and southwestern Netherlands from October 2 to November 8, 1944. These toy soldiers, including the Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery figure, were produced in 40s by Durso (Belgium).
