Terry, thanks, I have a soft spot for these. I saw a navy ratings cap recently but did not hit the buy it now button, though I assume I will see another

I have a Brodie style helmet. Tried it out on the cat but it was too small!

My personal fave is the Mills grenade I have, complete with hole for a pin. Surely they never got that desperate?

Hi Jerry

Have you got an aeroplane? Mine looks like a Bleriot but much closer to a perambulator...or a shopping trolley...it's a toss up!

I should think that's a very good collection of just military items for most towns Simon. I had to spread the net. Regards, Paul.

Paul.

I am continually amazed how many varieties there actually are of these.
I have 4 different tanks for example.

I would love to find a hand grenade one.

regards

Simon, I would want Tommy and his Vickers MG. There were some nice items on ebay recently for Uxbridge. I only bought 2 or Uxbridge would have taken over. Same problem with Windsor.
Any of your items have a retail address mark? I guess if a town did not have a retailer selling crested china there will be non to be found. My Uxbridge Shelley China Armoured Car is marked C Hall China Rooms Uxbridge. Regards, Paul.

Lol, I think it is quite rare with the blue & white design, certainly unusual
