    Outstanding collection and display Douglas. As a Yank, I began collecting WW II Brit and Canadian uniforms and kit years ago and had a half dozen mannequin torsos set up to display my collection. I've since moved on to the RCAF and have my collection in my lower office. Plan to move it to my loft where I have more room and better lighting. Do you have a dedicated space to display your collection?

    Thanks Gary, and thanks Woodpecker and Stuka for your comments. I do indeed have a display room and you can find a picture of it under my profile- my albums- my militaria collection.
