Hi, sadly reached that stage where the house is full and grandchildren have come along. Now have to make room and sadly the uniforms and replica equipment has to go. Have the 101st Uniform with all equipment and helmets plus all the replica weapons (Thompson, Garad, M1a1 folding stock, German MP40 )and all must go. They have been worn on my travels from Bastogne, to St Marie Du mont, Brecourt, Zell am See, the Eagles Nest, Bois Jacque Woods, in fact anywhere the 'Eagles' went. Also have the British Para uniform worn at Oosterbeek, Arnhem and Pegasus plus replica Sten and 303. I have a British Helmet, Canadian helmet, German Helmet and a rather dubious Russian helmet. Also on my travels I have dug up many artefacts from around European battlefields such as a german gas mask canister I dug up around Son in Holland.
Need it all gone so please make me an offer.

Hi,
Do not sell them off, you will only end up buying them again over the next 10 years or so. And they will be more expensive to replace.
Find somewhere to store them.

Agreed - do what ever is necessary to hold onto your kit. That said, if you have British kit for sale I would be interested. Do you have original items or reproduction?
