World War I (1914-1918)
Over the past 25 years I have collected items like a squirrel with no particular theme other than I have an interest in military items & small vintage collects items. Sadly due to other collecting interests the time has come to offer some of the gems from my collection for sale to you. Most items are fresh to the market having been purchased over the years direct from deceased estates and a network of contacts in the antique and house clearance trade in county Durham. I hope you enjoy my offerings and good luck to all bidders.
