Lead Soldiers, Tanks and Trains

Hi.
Don't know if you can help at all, I have been left some lead, well I think they're lead, soldiers and tanks.
Most of the soldiers are on strips, some of 8 with a lead tag at end with no. M5 scored into it. These are approx 7 mm high, yes 7mm.
Others are of five soldiers with a tag of A1/A2/A5/GR5A. The tanks have removable turrets and are 10mm/ 1cm.high.
Cheers Stewart.

Lead Soldiers

SORRY ABOUT PICTURE QUALITY BEST I COULD DO BECAUSE THEY ARE SO SMALL, THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR TIME.
CHEERS
Stewart.

These are Heroics and Ros Figures, made from the mid 70's, in my basement of the Soldier Shop in Lambeth, which I rented to Roger O Styles (Ros) for several years. They were bought for wargaming and were also used by the BBC and ITV to illustrate battle formations on the news and current affair programmes.

They only have a very small value, perhaps £2-3 for the lot, maybe try Ebay if you want to sell. Made of lead/tin mixture.

Best

John
