Handmade 60 mm / 1:30 scale tin soldier of the Norwegian captain Martin Linge from the British raid on Måløy in 1941. During the Måløy raid (Operation Archery) a force of 576 men participated, of which 51 were officers. Among these were Martin Linge, his assistant Rubin Langmo and 15 other Norwegian commando soldiers. The attack was militarily successful, - but during an attack on Ulvesund Hotell in Måløy, Martin Linge was hit in a shootout and died on the steps of the hotel. Rubin Langmo tried in vain to save him. On 19 June 1942, agent Martin Linge was awarded the War Cross with Sword post mortem "for outstanding bravery during the raid on Måløy on 27 December 1941, where he fell." Linge was honored by the British with the Distinguished Service Cross. The Norwegian Independent Company No. 1 was named Kompani Linge in honor of their fallen captain.
Fantastisk bra figur, en flott utført action figur, meget godt håndtverk!😀
Legendarisk fyr, legendarisk tinnsoldat
Her har vi Linge på kornet når han gikk sine siste steg på Måløy. Heftig liten sak å ha på hylla der en bare kan forestille seg hvordan det hadde gått om han overlevde. Veldig gjennomført utført tinnsoldat!
