1960's Marx Lipton Tea (Famous Canadians)

The 36 Famous Canadians were produced in hard plastic and painted in Hong Kong by the Louis Marx Co. in circa 1960, exclusively for Thomas J. Lipton, Ltd., Toronto, Canada, to be used as tea premiums. They were issued as a single figure in a plastic bag with history card written in English on one side and French on the other side. Here I have figures of
 - Daumont De St. Lusson ((?)-1677), a military officer of New France and deputy of Jean Talon,
 - Laura Secord (1775 -1868), a Canadian heroine of the War of 1812 between the United States and the United Kingdom,
 - Lord Snydenham (1799 - 1841), the first Governor General of the united Province of Canada.

Codenamed Operation Neptune and often referred to as D-Day, it was the largest seaborne invasion in history.

May 1942: The Second Battle of Kharkov

The Second Battle of Kharkov or Operation Fredericus was an Axis counter-offensive in the region around Kharkov against the Red Army Izium bridgehead offensive conducted 12–28 May 1942, on the Eastern Front during World War II. Its objective was to eliminate the Izium bridgehead over Seversky Donets or the "Barvenkovo bulge" which was one of the Soviet offensive's staging areas. After a winter counter-offensive that drove German troops away from Moscow but depleted the Red Army's reserves, the Kharkov offensive was a new Soviet attempt to expand upon their strategic initiative, although it failed to secure a significant element of surprise.
These plastic soldiers are from different makers : Marx, CTS, TSSD, Airfix, Engineer Basevich and DGN. The terrain is produced by TTCombat.
