The Scottish regiments had served in the British army since the union of
Scotland with England, so they were included in the ranks of the 8th
Army. Under General Bernard Montgomery the 8th Army fought against
German/ Italian units in North Africa. After initial heavy defeats, the
8th Army succeeded in forcing the German units under General Erwin
Rommel to retreat at the second Battle of El Alamein and thus averted
the danger that Egypt would be taken.This set includes 44 unpainted
