World War IIBritish Militaria
So now the time has come for me to make a start to thin out my British militaria collection and pass some of the collection on to others, so that they can take on the responsibility, to look after them.
Authentic WW2 British Militaria
As a child in the late 70 early 80s I started adding to a small collection of military cap badges that my dad had put together during and after his national service.
After a few years I acquired a wardens helmet and then a Gas mask. From that point I was hooked on the history and artifacts of World War 2.
I started to meet and get to know other people who shared my interest and I discovered arms fairs, and the Military Vehicle Conservation Group that soon became the Military Vehicle Trust.
I never got into the thing of collecting one thing and then selling that collection to start another so as a result the collection grew and grew.
All reproductions are made in house, in the UK by myself. Usually copied from items in my own collection. All reproductions are made in house, in the UK by myself. Usually copied from items in my own collection.
British Militaria – the collection
40 Years on...
Finally, after another 40 years on the addiction is still there and because of this the collection is still growing. Filling 2 houses, 4 sheds , a garage and a large car port, so therefore its time to down size.
Look after the collection
