It is over 20 years since the magazine’s launch at Stockport Arms Fair in January 1994 and, despite economic gloom and changing times, the militaria collecting scene hasn’t changed a great deal.

The inexhaustible stream of artefacts linking us to past conflicts still throws up some interesting stories and we feature them in every issue. If you have something in your collection with a story to tell, we’d love to hear from you.
