Hello from the midwest.
« on: December 21, 2016, 07:27:30 PM »
Hi All,

I have been collecting commonwealth militaria for around 15 years. I grew up in Australia and served in the Australian army for around 5 and a half years before moving to the US and joining the US army reserve. Since moving here I have started to collect more US uniforms. Mainly related to the AAF, airborne and units serving in North Africa and Italy.

I look forward to contributing on here.
