We buy and sell collectable Military and Police insignia by mail order. Most items are British or British Commonwealth from 1881 to the present, plus a good selection of worldwide Parachute Wings.

Our business reputation depends on us selling original bona fide items - we make every effort to ensure that the items we sell are genuine, and will take back, without quibbling, any items with which you are not completely satisfied.

We have NO German NAZI items, NO medals,
NO knives, NO g uns and NO bulky equipment.
Whatever we sell must be small enough - and legal enough - to be sent by mail.
