600SE6 Toy Soldiers Set 51st Brudenell's. Regiment of Foot c.1759 Minden
Limited set only 100 Produced
In 1757 it was renamed the 51st Regiment Brudenell's. Raised in the West Riding of Yorkshire, it has had the strongest possible association with that area ever since, becoming the 51st (2nd Yorkshire, West Riding) Regiment in 1782.
It was in the Seven Years’ War (1756-63) that, at the Battle of Minden (1759), the Regiment gained its first, and perhaps most well known, battle honour. The victory at Minden is celebrated every year on 1st August when white roses are worn in the headdress, symbolising the roses allegedly plucked by soldiers of the Regiment at Minden.
From 1771 to 1782 the 51st Regiment of Foot was in Minorca and it was there in 1777 that the young Ensign John Moore joined them. After service in Ireland, Gibraltar and Corsica the 51st returned to England for a brief stay before embarking for Spain in 1807.

In 1980 the toy soldier range painted in gloss was introduced, sculpted by David Scheinmann, and today by Andrew Stadden which from modest beginnings has expanded to a very extensive range covering many popular subjects and periods of military history.
