Memories of times past...

Hello I'm back-back to work and on the road to feeling better. Since I've been away I've had a conceit to try and do some 1930s civilian militias in 54mm for a very British Civil War circa 1938. My memories of my Wm Britians catalogue 1964 or so gave me hope- farmers with shot guns,mounted figures in hunting pink and suitable carts.
However looking at their current range on the web I see I am well out of touch! No farmer with shotgun ,no fox hunters etc! I fear I should have realised time has indeed moved on...
So any ideas for 1938 in 54mm eagerly sought- thanks in anticipation
