Hi To all the collectors in Britain currently under lock down conditions.
While this is a badge forum, I do have a naval militaria collection.
I will post some images from my NZ Naval collection each day. Some of the photos are not the best quality and some of the items are boring but they are all naval.
Hopefully this will be a bit of a distraction.

Nothing boring here pal I have quietly been collecting and putting away Named officers Naval tunic for many years , a very underrated area of collecting , to think for well less than a hundred quid you can get a tunic belonging to an officer who was a ships captain and chances are these tunics were ` combat` worn on operations unlike army service dress

Totally agree!

Nothing boring with any of this lot! I've been collecting similar items for over thirty years.

Bought this last month 25 quid 1934 dated with buttons to the Jamaica Fruit shipping company named inside to what I'm told was a Great war Army doctor ? When I find out for sure will post it here just delighted a lively part of history for the price of a decent bottle of wine !
