To make a change from cigarette cards, Salem produced a set of tin soldiers. Series 1 consisted of 48 German soldiers, 20 French soldiers, 20 English soldiers, 4 Scottish soldiers and one bush. Köberich lists a colonial soldier instead of a bush so presumably one or other of us has got the wrong end of the stick. The official Salem lists notes in which cigarette packets the soldiers were to be found, so presumably these were flat figures rather than full 3-D ones.
