Just wondering what else members collect,,I have a very small collection of Royal Artillery cap badges ,Have a few different types most are repro but as most of you know that doesnt really bother me,,ill try dig them out tomorro and post some pics
I also collect other ww2 german gear.
I have items ranging from armbands to trench lanterns!
Its time too sort out the room now the bathroom gear is out.I had loads of tiles and equipment stacked up:huh:


i had a dummy SMLE when i was a kid ,found under a pile of wood in my grandfathers garden,,never did find out if it was a practice rifle for home guard or just an apprentice type piece,,the bolt opened but there was no where to chamber a round ,also the trigger was solid,the mgazine was cut down and screwed directly to the woodwork,,but it looked the part especially with the 07 bayonet attatched,unfortunately some dork used it for bayonet practice (in my absense)and it got smashed
Not far off the subject, I collect Waffen Revue and Armourer magazines.....I have most, and have some spares, so yell if you need information or a spare mag :)

I collect Any books written on the history of Bomb disposal and memoirs of bomb disposal personel .

I collect anything Pak related, especially if it is for the 3,7cm Pak and I try to find containers to match my german shells as well. Even the labels on the containers when they are intact are an amazing reference source.
