I like to collect mainly Scottish regiment uniforms, headgear and other militaria from the Victorian, WWI and WWII periods. I do also collect Canadian militaria as II like to collect mainly Scottish regiment uniforms, headgear and other militaria from the Victorian, WWI and WWII periods. I do also collect Canadian militaria as I am from Canada. The two non-Scottish Canadian regiments I collect the most to are the Royal Winnipeg Rifles and Winnipeg Grenadiers. I also collect some WWII German items. (Read more)

  1. Fortapache, Very nice model ship collection! It's very hard to say as to what class of ship it is, but I would have to agree that it's probably a British Heavy Cruiser. Thank you very much for yo...
  2. fortapache, Many thanks for your comment as always, and help in possible identification. I can't tell if there is a gun to the side of the superstructure, unfortunately, as the ship is quite far a...
  3. These are super cool. Great collection!
  4. Lovely find!
  5. 1st Badge is Royal Canadian Dental Corps, 2nd may be a rank crown, but something army related probably for a uniform. Both have Queen's Crown so post-1953. Nice badges.
  6. Lovely dress coat and helmet! The full dress helmet reminds me of the British Victorian/Edwardian (used around the same time as this helmet) Home Service Blue Cloth Spiked Helmet, you may not know wha...
  7. Not an expert on US stuff, but pre-WWI USA Cavalry Kepi top badge? M Squadron, 13th Cavalry perhaps?
  8. Fortapache, What a pretty drawing! I absolutely love your military/aviation framed picture wall, by the way, it looks so nice. Best regards, -Jamie
  9. Roy, Thank you very much for your kind comment and for stopping by as always. blunderbuss, Yes, I've already posted it once, and you can see the cap badge on my profile picture every day! ...
  10. Very nice bayonet. Best regards, -Jamie
  11. Roy, Canadian Scouts? That's a very special photo and ancestor in that case. I wonder if his medals are hiding somewhere? If they still exist or are still apart of the family, I'm sure it would be...
  12. Britishmilitarycaps, Sorry for the late reply. Thank you for your kind comment. Lining is in good condition, it has the maker, "Jones Chalk & Dawson" based in London, with a King's Crown. I agree,...
  13. billretirecoll, Thank you very much for your kind comment. I also like duffle bags as well, they brought the soldier's essentials of life with him to the front lines. I am glad Winnipeg gives you ...
  14. Hello Roy, I just came across this today while doing some searches around the site. This is an extremely nice photograph, must be something quite special to have an ancestor that fought in the Boe...
  15. Thank you kindly for the nice comment and love, Trey. Best regards, -Jamie
  16. Hello Blunder, Thanks for the nice comment. I have not used this "black light test" on this cap, I merely looked behind the piping to reveal the original and old pink colours that once were to the...
  17. Very nice looking cap, I especially like the RAEC badge, it really stands out on the cap.
  18. Excuse all my questions, I know you're busy right now Blunder, but after looking again, two objects peaked my interest in this lot. What's the eagle badge with the red and yellow?? I've never seen one...
  19. After doing a quick search, your helmet appears to be a M34 Single Decal Civic Police Helmet. I'm no expert ant don't know if it's original or not, nor am I qualified to say so, but it looks pretty go...
  20. fortapache, Thank you very much for your kind comment. Indeed, the Germans did have great style, that's why I also collect a few German items including this cap, they knew how to be fashionable wh...
  21. Lovely model tank, thanks for sharing. Afrika Korps sand camo coloured or just a bit rusty?
  22. Beautiful items, blunder. I really like the collar and shoulder tabs. I've never seen an armband like that before, but it is beautiful especially with the SS stamp, I'm sure this armband is rare? Also...
  23. Beautiful items, blunder. Helmet is police, but period original? The helmet is very nice.
  24. Tanni, Thank you very much for your kind comment, I am glad you like my little display! Best regards, -Jamie
  25. Blunderbuss, Thank you, eh.
  26. fortapache, Thank you very much for your kind comment as always, I'm glad you think it's an interesting display. TassieDevil, Thanks so much for the kind comment, I'm glad you thought it w...
  27. Blunderbuss, That's what I thought it was but was not for sure certain. Thank you for the confirmation and the comment as always. Best regards, -Jamie
  28. elanski, I personally think it's late WWII period but I could be wrong. I do agree it has a real aged look to it, something that is even more apparent when you are holding it in person. Khaki cove...
  29. Blunder, Many thanks yet again for your kind comment my friend. I actually got this cap from eBay of all places, but this is for sure a real deal item, not an eBay fake. It was originally listed a...
  30. Blunder, That post maybe laugh so hard, LOL! I don't know what else to say but that is hilarious. Your stories never cease to impress me, Blunder, and in this case, make me laugh. The Hitler Youth...
  31. fortapache, Beautiful old fan you've got there, I really like it. It sure looks like it's straight from the 20s. Great piece and description, thanks for sharing. Best regards, -Jamie
  32. blunder, I completely agree. Before the war, Hitler was a great politician that turned Germany into a European Empire once again, straight out of the depression and fallout of the Great War. But a...
  33. Blunderbuss, I would absolutely love to see some of your German item(s) when you find them. Best regards, -Jamie
  34. One can only imagine what the world would be like today if the Germans had won the war. The story of the SS, and that of the Third Reich is that of a tragedy, all the death and destruction could have ...
  35. Imagine wearing these to a social event! The neatest pair of sunglasses I've ever seen, especially strange since they're vintage and look futuristic and ahead of their time, king of Star Trek-y if you...
  36. Blunderbuss, Thanks for the facts, that's a big percentage of SS being non-German. Did you know the 13th SS (Croatian) Division even had ethnics and Muslims in it. If you've ever seen a picture of ...
  37. Hello Fortapache, Yes the British regiments always have such interesting names, I agree, which is a big part of why I like them so much. Many of the names come from the 1600s and 1700s, not sure t...
  38. What kind of items you still have, blunder?
  39. blunderbuss, I'm afraid not tonight, but I may or may not have a few more controversial items up my sleeve, or shall I say on my shelf, and most certainly more to be added in my collection in the ...
  40. Militarist, Thank you very much for your comment, it is greatly appreciated. No, I would never dream of ever trying to clean them up but thanks for the reminder. Wouldn't want to ruin these family...
  41. This is an old post so my apologies, Roy. But I was scrolling through some old posts and came across this, believe it or not I have a model just like this one, I don't know if it's the same brand mode...
  42. AnythingObscure, I understand why you can't quite bring yourself to hit the love button on this piece, but I nevertheless appreciate your like. Thank you very much for your kind words and support....
  43. Well said SpiritBear, it is a website for collectors after all. We may not all collect the same things, but we can all respect and understand why people collect what they collect. Thank you for your c...
  44. Thank you everyone for all the loves and comments!
  45. Tanni, Thank you for your comment, I agree, this symbol is a huge part of history and everyone should learn to know about it, not to censor or try to remove it from history. Everyone should learn e...
  46. Fortapache, Thank you for your kind words. Yes I thought I better put a disclaimer or else I'd probably get some odd looks, lol. Thanks for your love and comments as always. Blunderbuss, I ...
  47. Beautiful pictures taken, Roy. I especially like the first one. This time of year is splendid for picture taking and scenic walks!
  48. Many thanks everyone for all the loves.
  49. Gillian, Thanks, I did even see the ring on the uniformed rifleman. It could perhaps be a hot climate, or perhaps during the Summer time in Europe. I don't think white pants would be worn, nor no ...
  50. PostCardCollector, I personally think he has light hair, I don't think anyone older than 50 would even be a front line infantryman. I agree that he is a bit old than many of the younger soldiers th...
