    As is fairly well known on the forums here, I have a particular interest in British Army webbing, (37/44/58ptn sets), and British Army cap badges, but these days its whatever takes my eye at the time regardless of nationality and time period as long as it's military related.
    Like a lot of people, my big problem these days is financial, I am currently unemployed, so have to watch every penny!

    I know what you mean Jimpy. I have not been able to work since 2006, got fired for being disabled so I am on a tight budget myself. btw I haven't forgotten about the 17th/21st Lancers blazer patch I just haven't been able to get the other componets to go with my camera to post pic's. I talked to panzer yeager- Justin,the other day & am trying to figure a way to get pic's to him & he said he would put my stuff on here. take care.
    regards Marty

    I collect any battle gear a soldier would have worn or carried from any country, especially anything unusual, also combat helmets & bayonets, inert grenades, ordnance, surplus rifles, M1911, Lugers, Tokarevs.

    the combat helmet and bayonet are two of my favorite items to collect
