    Yep thats how I was but mate its hard to sit back and watch the prices of things rise higher and higher and the fakes get better and better. Not to mention the bulls@#t that often accompanies collecting such contentious items. You know what I mean..." thats a fake"...."no its not"...yes it is because it dont look like mine" etc etc. I have found most collectors of Imperial german items are more helpful in their approach and as for BRD the few collectors that there are are all very friendly and just as passionate about their hobby as any military collector. What really won me over was the jacket I posted recently on this forum from a feldwebel in the 11th Panzer Grenadier Division. It is a beauty and makes all the Wehrmacht tunics I have look downright shabby.

    Thats the trouble with living in a seaside country town.....there are no disposal stores nearby. Nearest one would be Newcastle I guess so I will take you advice Rene and pay it a visit when I am down that way next. Mate that is a good find and good price with no added costs like postage. Well done but this icon really says how I feel LOL

    Steve here is a pic of the Marine jacket. Not my normal cup of tea but I couldnt resist it when it come up for sale. I do have a bit of a soft spot for Navy even though I am fairly strict with my collecting (army only). As you can see the officer served at sea and has a gold proficiency badge and gold aircraft controllers trade. I am confused with this as I am pretty sure the German Navy does not have any aircraft carriers (or maybe it does) so where does an aircraft controller fit in on board a ship. Could it be for helicopters perhaps? Anyway hope you like it.
