Vintage 1970 Action Man Royal Palace Grenadier Guard


A Royal Palace Guardsman typically spends around six hours polishing and cleaning his uniform before going on duty. Happily, our vintage Action Man can slip into his 1970, late issue Grenadier Guards outfit without all that fuss or bother. Included with this collection is an original, hard to find Grenadier Guardsman storage box and leaflet, a highly informative and educational read. A detailed and complete description of each accessory is included below.
