About me

I am based in Groningen, The Netherlands.
Since 1989 I have been collecting all types of Military Collectables and Military Memorabilia.
During my time in the Dutch Army as a sergeant of the Special Force 108 Dive Platoon I started collecting Military items.
I did visit a couple of countries of the African continent and decided to primarily collect items from the continent which has a huge History.

If you have any items that you wish to sell just let me know (preferably accompanied with images) at
Interested in Katanga Badges Medals and Belgium Congo Badges. Also Special Forces from the African continent
