Hello from France
« on: December 10, 2016, 04:36:41 AM »
Good afternoon gentlemen !

I am a collector from France and very glad to be a new member of this forum. Though I naturally focus on french militaria from WWI and WWII, I do not despise at all the other countries' militaria. I hope we will have fruitful exchanges, and I am anyway convinced I will learn a lot about foreign militaria here. I will be also very glad to help my fellow foreign collectors if they have any questions about french militaria I can answer to.

See you soon !

Welcome from your neighbor here in Germany, been to your country many times on vacation, mostly on the coast, beautiful and very full of history.
Also looking forward to seeing your French militaria.
