Mons' :- Autumn 2018
Mons Military Antiques adds to its site sales pages, (in the main) a diverse range of 1914 - 1945 military antiques and collectables, where all spend capabilities are catered for; allowing beginners as well as advanced collectors to enjoy listed items.
I have over the past months been on many trips within the UK and Europe viewing and buying in stock; this continues to be the case!
Not all Mons’ stocked items are detailed/site listed. I have many items in stock awaiting listing.
All listed items are available for immediate purchase un-like the current ‘fashion’ for buying at auction. Prices again un-like auction houses, are as stated and are without expensive buyer premiums and VAT on the buyer premiums.
Mons’ also offers easy payment plans on multi buys and the more expensive
items, making an addition to your collection as easy as possible.
Mons' is always happy to receive the offer of surplus to collection items, either as part exchanges or direct purchase. (As long as a seller is happy/can comply with my buy in regime, see terms 'Buying In').
The long, on-going ‘house-keeping chores' I have started regarding the site itself and stocked items seems to be a never ending task and coming a poor third in order of preference too site listing and stock purchasing.
My social media pages are used to give a 'heads up' and prior warning on some future listings, so my Face-Book, Twitter & Instagram pages are worth a look.
My LI page tries to promote the need to value our uniformed services and medical personnel.
Mons Military Antiques can be followed via ‘Twitter', search Richard Archer, on ‘Instagram’ search Mons Military Antiques and Face book search Mons Military Antiques....
....'Busy times (as ever), and much too do’,....please remember its only me doing it all!
'Looking forward to hearing from you soon' !

WW1 BRITISH ARIAL FLECHETTE DART (1)
A superb, multi-piece construction arial dart, as used as an anti-personnel weapon during WW1.
This form of multi-piece dart gave way to the simpler to manufacture darts single piece machined dart.
This earlier form of dart and its manufacture are typical of the craftsmanship of the day.
(Arial flechette darts were intended as an anti-personnel weapon intended to cause severe none life threatening injury. In doing this the the unfortunate being struck by the weapon was eliminated from the conflict and said medical services called to action to treat the casualty, placing maximum strain on the medical services).
