    I've also responded by saying "These are war-trophies brought home by our grandfathers...do you prefer they be trashed, instead?"
    That ended that particular conversation, lol...
    I can't abide ignorance!

    In the years following the war, veterans who had businesses at times would display there war souvenirs in their business. It was not an uncommon sight. As a youngster collecting, veterans found it interesting that I wanted to collect the stuff they picked up overseas. It was not until the late 70's that there was a change in attitude. I think much of this came from how historical events were portrayed in film and television programing. In today's world, if someone ever makes a negative remark, which does not happen often as my collection is not available to just anyone, I will tell them it is better that I collect their items than if they won and were collecting our items.

    Good old lemmy.

    I've not had people make comments towards me being a "nazi" or "racist" for collecting some reich items.
    However, I do have people in my ear saying how its a waste of money and basically junk.
    Im looking for an a case to an 1936 olympics medal and a case to entry to austria medal. pm me If you have any spare.

    Good for parking I assume, you just squash anything in the way, or blast it into oblivion.

    Interesting responses, and thank you for them. I just feel in someways I shouldn't have to hide my collection away, on the other hand I keep the better items in my office.

    Very interesting insights, Bob! I couldn't agree more with that statement, the more people are "educated" by the entertainment industry the further they stray away from actual objective truths... seeing everything in a highly subjective black and white, no gray area and no depth or room to discuss or wonder.

    Which is why I keep my collection of Fuzzy Wuzzy heads on pikes and Ears from Nam totally private.
