    He has some great stuff but sleeping in hitlers bed? I think he may have a few issues but I'd gladly have some of his items and I'd be more than happy to view it all, just think this bloke might have a few problems if he likes sleeping in hitlers bed. I would rather sleep on the floor than in that bastards bed!

    I would never sleep in adolfs bunk. I would prefer to sleep on the floor.

    Sounds like he wants to "be" Adolf when he say things like that.
    Buuuut let us not forget that media has their own agenda when it comes to anything militaria related. And Jealousy shines thru....
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    As much as I'd love to have even a decent fraction of that wealth I can't help wondering if it would actually spoil my enjoyment of collecting. Knowing you can afford anything that crops up would take away, for me anyway, that feeling of 'If only...' and the anticipation that builds when you save up for an item that is just beyond the amount you have in your piggy bank at that moment in time. It might be a novelty at first but I think eventually I'd get bored.

    If anyone has a spare million or two I'd be willing to test that theory!

    Many years ago I visited Kevin's collection. It was impressive back then, never mind what he has now.

    I once sold him a mint boxed windscreen heater for a Kublewagen.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I wonder how many times he may have been taken by unscrupulous individuals ?
    Claims, as we all know, need serious verification.
    The offer to sell Hitler's bronze desk set by Herr Gottlieb in San Diego a couple of years ago leaps into my mind. The provenance was a work of fiction but sounded good.

    Quite a bit I'd imagine. It seems the more money people have the more gullible they are.
    Did he personally go into the semi-demolished prison to get the door or did he ask the builders to get it? If the latter what's to say they didn't just grabbed any old cell door and some bricks?
