    Sounds like a great collection Taka! The Canadian and South African ones seem to be really hard to come by.

    Is it hard to find British militaria in Shanghai?

    Hi Karkee,

    Thank you for the comment.

    I didn't get any Commonwealth materials in Shanghai. (Mostly WWII U.S. and Japanese)

    I aquired my Commonwealth stuff from Canada and Japan.

    All my 6~7 years of collections are now in Japan, and I will be back there next week.

    Hopefully I can share my WWI, WWII Commonwealth and other collections, when I return to Shanghai.

    Cheers!

    I think the 2nd and 3rd ones are Sydney made (Australian). Johnson & Johnson is my favorite maker, too.

    Thank you for sharing, René.

    Cheers!
