The Thompson Submachine gun began its impressive career during the Prohibition era, being used by both law enforcement officers and gangsters. Favoured for its compactness, large .45 ACP bullet, and high volume of automatic fire, it soon became the one of the most trusted weapons used by U.S military forces by the onset of WW2. The 'Tommy Gun' also saw extensive service in the British, Australian, and Canadian Armies, in both the European and Pacific theaters. After the war, the Tommy gun continued its services in the Korean, First Indochina and Vietnam War.
In this campaign, modellers can build a diorama/vignette showing at least one soldier or civilian using the Tommy gun to great effect against enemy positions.
The Rules and Regs
1. Maximum of 6 figures allowed.
2. The figure/s using the Tommy gun must be the prime focus of the diorama/vignette, however, a single piece of Armour or vehicle may be included as long as it doesn't draw attention from the figure/s.

4. A minimum of two photographs are to be entered along with a short description in order to be eligible for the campaign ribbon.
