    Now I have a question for the bottom of one of your cases you have 2 mint unissued Tank or Truck decals for Canadian Armoured units.

    Did you happen to buy them within the past 2 months??? If so I know where they came from..let me know.

    Hi Dean, yes I just bought them on eBay from a Canadian seller recently. I love old unapplied decals and have quite a few unapplied Canadian helmet decals in a badge case. Thank you!

    Without doubt, i think its the finest collection of militaria in the world, those BDs are staggering, enough to equip a small army, do the windows at the side have anti glare to stop the uniforms from fading, also you keep adding so much its getting confusing as to which helmet your leaving me lol
    Why thank you Dave, it's high praise indeed but there's some great collections that are not shown publicly. The windows have metal blackout blinds, sun is never a problem. As for the helmet I've put it in a special place for you :-)

    Hi Aleks, the Tank Corps framed display is made up of some period photos / postcards, a British Tank Corps and Canadian 1st Tank Btn cap badges and a Canadian Tank Drivers trades badge along with a period sewn pillowcase which was common in the era made by the wives/sisters/mothers of the servicemen as a home reminder / memento to denote the branch of service their loved one served in overseas. No history behind any of the items I am afraid, all were merely eBay purchases over the years which I had framed up. The pillowcase was mounted on an old board when I bought it wich was all warped and shrunk due to age so I had the framers remove it and re stretch the pillowcase and it turned out quite well. Thanks for the compliment!
    Thank you for the info! Proper display makes wonders!

    This is by far the most amazing collection I have ever seen. I could spend hours just looking over one section of what you have. What is the rearest and oddest pieces you have???
    Thanks for sharing your war room with us.

    Hi John,

    Thank you! My rarest and oddest, wow that's a tall order. Good question. I like to collect the rare and odd so I am not really sure off the top of my head. Let me chew on that and get back to you.

    My God Doug ! That has to be one of the worlds largest military museums !!


    I think you are right Nick, I think mine is one of the smallest museums in the world!!! Not complaining though, I am fortunate to have what I have. Once again Doug, wonderful to see, I am now going to watch Zulu to "cheer" myself up! Leon.

    Before I do , here are some other bits of my "postage stamp" museum"( sorry Doug)
