Between writing this post and the previous one about tossing the dolls high up into the trees, I remembered another ‘sport’ was to place the soldiers on bent back low hanging branches and springing them into “Palitoy kingdom come”.

And yes, for the benefit of my American readers, an Action Man IS much like your G.I.Joe toy.
Except it isn’t. If that makes sense?
Action Man was much cooler.
