    I was speaking to my Dad last night and one of the
    first things I always ask is brought anymore bits for
    your collection...his flat is more like a museum. I can
    honestly say you could spend an afternoon there
    and you still wouldn't get to see half his collection, my
    kids love it...Guns, swords, daggers, badges, models,
    pictures, books, the list goes on. Well last night he
    phoned to ask if I could look at a badge for him to see
    if I could identify it, I done a search using all the
    information he gave me and it turns out its a Luftwaffe
    Ground Combat Badge and it looks to be original, at the
    same time he picked up a group of 5 medals with the
    war medal having the oak leak for mentioned in
    despatches, unfortunately no paperwork to say who
    they were issued to...and how much did he pay for
    both items? 55 pound...lucky so and so. If the Luftwaffe
    badge does turn out to be original the cheapest I saw
    on the net was 80 pound and the dearest was 285
    pound, not bad for 10 pound. He has spoken to the local
    commanding cadet force officer to see if they would
    like to come round and have a browse...I am sure
    he could sell tickets :D:D.

    Great to hear that your father has a large collection of Militaria.

    I hope he is security minded as sometimes the wrong people get to hear of such collections.

    Just something to bear in mind.
