D-DAY 75th anniversary

Hi Strelets,
As mentioned in the title, this year is one those where we might hope something matching passion of history and our favourite hobby.
Any chance of a British/Allied commando set as they appeared from D-DAY to April 1945 with berets, Bergen bags and so on?
And before anyone asks, I don't think we need another set of German infantry for WW2.
Have a great weekend.

Re: D-DAY 75th anniversary

I love this idea! With a command sprue with piper, radioman, guy pushing bicycle loaded with supplies & Lovett in sweater! (Tho I know he didn't actually wear it!)

Tho the Pegasus set was fantastic, a set or 2 (or 3) of troops actually landing; running hunched over, cowering behind obstacles, casualties, etc.

Yes please, and with Vickers K machine guns.
