As most collectors of toy soldiers, I was nine when at Christmas I received a dozen Britains “B” series Scots Guards and three Johillco Highlanders, My folks had purchased them from the Vaughns Seed stores in downtown Chicago. From 1948 on the “ seeds were sown” and I would make numerous sor-ties to the store until it closed in 1955.
From 1956 thru 1972 education and that “Crazy Asian War” took precedence. The Old Toy Soldier Newsletter, Gus Hansen and Bart Bryerton amongst others provided me with troops in No 1 dress (No khaki) except for some sets of Boers.
Being a surgical Pathologist detail and anatomic symmetry were prerequisites exemplified in the civilian figures of Dr. Bussler. The time has come for the “regiments”to be assigned another billet.
