New Recruit

Postby Warspite » 02 Aug 2016 15:32

Hi Everyone

Many thanks for the add. I'm Ed from the wild norths of West Yorkshire in Great Briatin. I am predominantly a twentieth century collector, but I keep finding earlier bits and pieces so thought it was about time I joined the forum.
For those of you with wide tastes, I write the Tales of the Supply Depot blog ( which mostly focuses on twentieth century British and Empire militaria, although there are earlier objects as well including my pride and joy: a Gahendra rifle I spent many hours de-gunking.

I'm not sure what I can add to the forum, but I hope people wont mind the odd question when I find something intriguing I am not sure of...

Hello Ed;

Welcome to the Forum, I'm sure you will enjoy it.

I just had a look at your " Tales of the Supply Depot " and was astounded at the scope and depth of your knowledge. Your grasp of the minutae of 20th century military kit is simply staggering and I have no doubt that you will fit right in to " our " time period. You will probably enjoy seeing how different items have developed over the years and will appreciate it even more with your knowledge of the later version.
