Mons' :- Approaching autumn 2017
Summer / Autumn 2017
Mons Military Antiques tries to add to its site sales pages a diverse range of 1914 - 1945 military antiques and collectables. All spend capabilities are catered for, allowing beginners as well as advanced collectors to enjoy listed items.
Not all stock items are detailed, with many items awaiting description, photography and subsequent listing.
All prices listed, unlike auction houses, are as stated and are with-out buyer premiums.
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 'house-keeping chores' I have started to carry out are on going, with some being a little more time consuming than I would have liked / expected; the organisation of new stock being the worst offender in this respect.
Site promotion via social media and attendance at militaria fairs is bringing to Mons' new site viewers, buyers alike.
Social media is also used to give a 'heads up' and prior warning on some future listings.
Mons Military Antiques can now also be followed on 'Twitter'....search & follow Richard Archer @DICKY61ARW

WW2 EXAMPLE OF A ROYAL FLYING CORPS PILOT BREVET
A superb example of a WW2 produced Royal Flying Corps pilots brevet.
Fantastic fine thread detail, trying to replicate the detail of a WW1 vintage brevet with all its fine intricacies.
Paper reverse backing with some damage.
Few WW2 brevet produces, produced what were in effect replicas of WW1 RFC pilot brevets.
Those manufacturers producing such brevets, created a mix, in terms of its manufacture and overall appearance of a brevet that had a very distinct 'look'.
These were produced and officially sanctioned for wear by such qualified WW1 pilots serving with uniformed home front services, namely the Home Guard.
WW2 produced items are infinitely rarer than their WW1 counterparts.
Only the second example I have ever owned in 40 years.

WW1 BRITISH ROYAL FLYING CORPS SILK POSTCARD
A superb example of this 'cottage industry' thread work that sprang up throughout France and Belgium's 'peasant' population, selling their wares to serving British troops as souvenirs.

Brief period pencils message to the reverse.

With a further photograph of the 'West Wall' defences, taken in 1947, by the same tourist.
Of some minor historic value, detailing the immediate area, just post WW2, and showing that just as with WW1, tourism of WW2 battle areas / fields started virtually immediately after the wars end.
