    Hi James, I'm getting too old to be crawling through the sand dunes at Ainsdale beach whilst wearing desert cammo. And the closest I ever got to the desert in my army career was when I queued up in the canteen for the sweet after the main course! On a serious note though, you are amassing a very important collection of post-war uniforms and equipment. So who better to give it all to?
