Notes:

The Action Man Bivouac 'De Luxe' Pup Tent and Sleeping Bag sets pictured below are a scale accessory for Action Man. The guy lines are missing in the images below. They loop round each peg. The sets are made from Palitoy choosing items from other smaller cards (see below). Many other accessories were available for pocket money prices, and it would have taken a few trips to the toy shop to get a completely kitted out Soldier. The Action Man Army Manual (that was included with the boxed Action Soldier) had details of how to set up figures, and the accessories available.
