A Forgotten Trio: Matchbox Personnel Carrier, Jeep and Field Gun

I recently rediscovered three cars from my childhood collection. They weren’t kept in my old race case, but were in a different box full of military toys that has gone unopened for several years. I think I bought these late in my childhood and didn’t play with them much, so all three are in pretty great shape.

I even found the two little soldiers and the plastic base that came with the Field Gun. The only thing I’m missing is the plastic ammo that can be fired from the spring-loaded gun.
