    Originally I had planned to distribute my collection to libraries and museums, but in all likelihood I will probably end up passing it on to persons of similar interests as that is how I acquired most of it in the first place.

    My research is of course already out there in the form of my website. Keeping this website alive will fall to my eldest daughter, by that I mean paying for the renewal of the domain and internet space etc.

    Any militaria I may have collected over the years, can be kept in the family if they so wish, or, if not can be sold off in a responsible fashion. Failing that, I am considering donating much of my papers, books and odds and sods to the Museum of Liverpool, as this seems to be the appropriate place for it to go right now.

    My militaria collection will be displayed at my funeral and auctioned off immediately after. Only individuals that attend the funeral will be allowed to bid on the collection.

    Attendance should good. ;)

    Some of my stuff has already gone to the RA Museum Woolwich & the IWM.
    The rest to be shared by my Son & Grandson, who are both keen WW1& WW2 Arty followers, because of the familie's Gunner association.

    You are dead right....... very similar in content and if I had spent more time in finding it I probably would have used it.

    The only difference is that this thread seems to place more emphasis on who are going to be the beneficaries ;)

    If your youngest daughter shows interest then she's obviously the right candidate for receiving your memorabilia.

    On this very cold morning I send you my warmest regards !

    Hi Ron, it's going to be a difficult decision as I've brothers who would like to have our fathers memorabilia. I'm still in the process of putting his story together. May be a nephew will be my choice who knows.
    Interesting thread thanks for posting, thought provoking.

    One of the lesser joys in life is wondering what will happen to all of the stuff one has posted on the internet.

    In the past, I created various Blogs to cover my various interests and included one to duplicate my Army Album.

    I was delighted to find that the Wayback Machine had scanned all of my blogs including my military ones as shown here;

    ww2talk.com is constantly archived by the same organisation and I can't speak too highly of the ethos behind the site.
