Hello
« on: February 04, 2016, 12:16:47 AM »
Hi

I have just joined and thought that I would say hello.
My main collecting area is WW2 RAF flying clothing, mostly early war period and I also collect spade grip`s in a small way.
I particularly like the Battle of Britain and the Defiant in particular, I`m probably in a bit of a minority there. ::)
Anyway, that`s me in a nutshell.

Cheers
Sparky

I`m glad you like the posts, why did you sell your collection out of interest ?
