Mons' :- Winter 2019
New e-mail address:- email@example.com
Mons Military Antiques adds to its site sales pages, a diverse range of 1914 - 1945 military antiques and collectables (with peripheral items included).
All spend capabilities are catered for; allowing beginners as well as advanced collectors to ‘enjoy’ listed items.
Not all Mons’ stocked items are detailed/site listed.
All listed items are available for immediate purchase, with no additional charges (other than post), and are covered by a ‘good’ guarantee.
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 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, IS a never ending task and sometime impinges open listing regimes.
My social media pages are used to give a 'heads up' and prior warning on some future listings, so my Face-Book, Instagram & Twitter pages are worth a peek
My LI page tries to promote the need to value our uniformed services and medical personnel, rather than sales promotion.
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!
'Hope to hearing from you soon' !

WW2 AIR MINISTRY BOMBING DAMAGE EVALUATION ARIAL PHOTOGRAPHS
Four, Air Ministry bombing damage evaluation, arial photographs of Hanover.
Excellent condition printed on AM photographic paper.
Sobering images !
Code: 107487Price: 28.00 GBP
WW1 BRITISH 1917 DATED DeCOURCY & Co. ‘TRENCH’ WHISTLE
A very nice, damage free condition tube/flute whistle as manufactured by DeCourcey.
Clearly 1917 dated with full maker details above the date.
Untouched, grubby condition, complete with a period leather pocket fob.
This manufacture of whistle was in my opinion slightly more robust in construction than their Hudson counter part. They were however produced and issued in far fewer numbers than Hudson manufactured items.
(I believe this is the only DeCourcey whistle I have ever owned that has a fitted period fob.....)
Code: 107485Price: 120.00 GBP
WW1 BRITISH 1915 DATED HUDSON ‘TRENCH’ WHISTLE
A very nice, clean, untouched example of a 1915 dated 'Hudson' whistle.
Good finish to the whistle overall, being dent and damage free.
Whistle marked 'J. Hudson & Co. Birmingham', with good clear ‘large’ date marking.
Nice untouched condition.
Code: 107484Price: 85.00 GBP
BOER WAR ‘SMALL BOOK’ MIDDLESEX REGIMENT
A fine example of a Boer War vintage (and prior) soldiers ‘The Small Book’ to a regular soldier in the Middlesex Regiment.
Private Joseph Smith volunteered for service in April 1892 with the 4th Middlesex.
Serving some 8 years he embarked for South Africa February 1900 arriving Cape Town a month later.
Good clean overall condition, worthy of further research. Nice item for the regimental collector.
IMPERIAL GERMAN NAVY PETTY OFFICER CAP BADGE
A superb, bullion wire example of a petty officer cap badges as used by the Imperial German Navy.
Silver & gilt bullion wire work is in outstanding condition, being damage free, but with some slight age fading, and a little grubby.
The badge detail is in high relief, giving a three dimensional effect to the badge.
Cloth backing in matching damage free condition, but again grubby.
A superb looking badge !
Code: 107480Price: 385.00 GBP
IMPERIAL GERMAN ENLISTED MANS REGIMENTAL SHOULDER BOARD
An Imperial German pre-WW1 shoulder board. Navy blue backing with white numerals......I cant seem to identify the unit!
As can be seen the board has suffered bad storage and as such is with, bad, (none active) moth damage......the scourge of the cloth insignia/uniform collector.
Their are many good products on the market to help assist the collector in preventing further deterioration.
All are available via the inter-net.
Code: 107476Price: 25.00 GBP
WW1 ARIEL FLECHETTE DART
A well engineered dart, designed for straight accurate flight.
Dart is with surface rusting and pitting.
No maker marks as is common.
(Some darts are difficult to now identify as to nationality, this make is considered to be of German origin. This I cannot confirm one way or another).
Code: 107475Price: 110.00 GBP
WW1 BRITISH OFFICER CUFF RANK TUNIC DEVONSHIRE REGIMENT
A superb, ‘used’, named, cuff rank tunic to an officer serving with the Devonshire Regiment, with the rank of lieutenant.
Tunic, overall condition is excellent, while showing good honest wear and with much ‘wear character’.
Heavy whip cord material, typical of tunics of the period, is with wear fading, and has had the cuff edges re-enforced/period repaired with leather.
Right lower sleeve has four overseas service chevrons attached, to include the red 1914 stripe, this being faded in keeping with the rest of the tunic. Left lower sleeve has two metal wound stripes attached.
Sleeve rank patches carries two pips to each sleeve, and shows promotion from 2nd Lt.
Left breast is fitted with end of war standard trio of medal ribbons, the ‘Mons’ rosette is sadly absent from 1914 ribbon.
Tunic is moth and damage free.
All matching correct regimental buttons and bronze Devonshire Regiment collar badges attached by fitting pins on loops.
To the inside pocket is attached a tailor label with good clear naming of the officer owning the tunic.
The obvious wear to the tunic, gives it a ‘lived in look’, which is ‘quite pleasing to the eye’.
To sum up, a lovely looking tunic, in untouched condition !
