Stop press!


Thank you to all that have continued to support me (with good will messages) personally and Mons’ also, I wish you all well....onto a ‘better’ (which ‘ain’t’ got off too a great start) 2021.


General daily up-date:-  27/01/21  Many thanks also too those that have shown extreme patience related to the dispatch of orders during this pandemic; my own ‘shielding situation’, has not helped and impinged upon post also. I appreciate your continued patience in these continuing ‘un-certain times’.


Post dispatch :- Next post out the latter stages of week beginning 25th Jan.

I managed to get a post out done on Sat 23rd. So all orders made up to and including Fri 22nd are dispatched.

As the Covid pandemic continues in the UK, on the evening of Monday 4th Jan 2021, the Prime Minister/Government has imposed greater (Level 5, the highest alert level) travel and personal inter-action restrictions both for business and day to day life. The country is now in almost total lockdown. As a civic duty as well as reducing personal infection risk (I am a high ‘at risk’ person), post dispatch is reduced to a minimal level. Orders can be made in the usual manner and will be reserved and dispatched accordingly. I will keep site viewers/buyers informed of developments regarding post dispatch, here, via this message board.

We live in exceptional times, with sadly all the problems (and solutions) that go with it.

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

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

Look after yourselves and others, best regards, Richard

Latest News


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 new 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 40 years experience as a collector and now over 25 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 !
