APRIL 2021

Month four ! ‘Things’ are starting to change in the UK regarding lockdown/Covid related issues, with a view to a return to the ‘new normal’ daily life.


General daily up-date:-  20/04/21  Thanks for the personal and continued support for Mons’ over the past year. Thanks also too those that have shown extreme patience related to the dispatch of their orders for what has now been over a year during the Covid pandemic; I appreciate your continued patience as we start to hopefully move toward more movement & liberty.


Post dispatch :- All due post as of 24.00hrs on 17th April is dispatched. More post outs over the week beginning 19th April.


The Covid pandemic still poses threats within the UK; however, announced April 5th restrictions on movement and daily interaction both at home and in the work place are being further removed on 12th April. Still, as a civic duty as well as reducing personal infection risk (I’m a ‘clinically at risk’ person), post dispatch is still running at reduced levels. Orders can be made in the usual manner; they will be reserved and dispatched accordingly. I will keep site viewers/buyers fully informed as to all post dispatch, here, via this message board.  As a summary, post is at present flowing well, with no delays.

Exceptional times, with sadly all the problems (and on the positive, solutions) that go with it; lets each of us play our part in overcoming them.

PAYING BY UK CHEQUE:- Please make sure you make cheques payable to MONS MILITARY ANTIQUES, not me personally.

Look in on my Mons’ social media pages Twitter, Face Book & Instagram. 

Best regards, Richard

Direct links on my social media ‘Home’ pages (Twitter, Face Book and Instagram) now fully work, and will connect you directly with this web site, from the social media page you are viewing.

I use SM on occasions to give a heads up regarding forth-coming listings.

(Please realise that 99.9% of my listings are ‘one-off’; when they are sold......’they are sold’).

Just an interesting ‘note’....Now that my ‘new site’ is Google ‘compliant’ its easier for site viewers to pick up on new listings of specific interest, when making a search. This I can confirm as my new site statistics are now far exceeding those of my old site, with the new site generating its own ‘internet traffic’ rather than just that of the old site directory.

Mons Military Antiques :- For the discerning, advanced & novice collector !

                                                                          As we move forward into 2021

Good listings to come (and plenty of them), ‘as I press forward’ into 2020 was my aim. Covid 19 (and to a degree my own health issue side effects) scuppered this; militaria and its collecting becoming something of a side issue in life. Now ‘we’ owe it to ourselves to press on, so here’s to better times and the listings I promised a year ago.

Visitors to my on-line shop can view and are able to buy items from many of the major nations contributing to 20th century (1914 – 1945) world conflict. Viewers will find, good quality WW1 & WW2 British militaria of most types, with a wide selection of items from major European and World protagonists represented in most sales categories. Site sales listing subject matters cover, Aviation, Field Equipment, Uniform & Headwear, Badge & Formation Sign, Ephemera, Document & Photograph related items….and more.

With over 45 years experience as a collector and now nearly 30 years trading as Mons Military Antiques, I specialise, as my trading name might suggest in WW1 British militaria & personal equipment of most types. I also offer when available one of the best/historically researched ranges of pre-WW2 British Fascist & Communist Party related artefacts & ephemera.

Attending regularly militaria fairs as a site promoter/exhibitor and on occasions a visitor only, affords me the opportunity to meet new & old site viewers/buyers alike, with a chance to discuss our hobby !

I’m always pleased to buy/part exchange surplus to collection items for stock, so feel free to mention in person or via my site, items you might wish to ‘move on’ (see my terms page on offering items).

New listings on Mons’ site are carried out on a perpetual, un-announced basis, with single or groups of ‘like’ items listed regularly.

Mons Military Antiques only handles items in terms of their historic / collector interest, in two words ‘military antiques’. I do not countenance or expound political, ethnic, social, national or emotive affiliations on any item offered for sale, I purvey ‘moments in time’ only !
