Dad's WW1 Army soldiers that he gave to me one Christmas

When I was 5 years old on Christmas morning in 1956, I woke up and when I went downstairs was greeted with a table filled
with my fathers WWI army solders.
He (like (I), was particular about he toys/possessions and he knew I would handle them well.

I enjoyed playing with them, and Jeff McKinstry and I spent hours having fun with these soldiers.
I took photos of them (below) and I hope to display them in the near future.

These 1930s toy cars were also Dad's; I painted them (unfortunately) when I was young,
but also have fond memories of them.
