Some History For You
Charles C Stadden (known to friends and family as Chas) was born in Leytonstone, London in 1919 and passed away in 2002. He had quite a colourful career, including full time military service with several regiments during WW2 covering Dunkirk, Africa, the Middle East, Italy and Greece.

It is little wonder with his history that Chas was interested in model soldiers. In 1951 he went into commercial production and was noted for his sculptures, figurines and artwork. A very talented artist.
