    DescriptionCollecting militaria is a hobby that has grown enormously in recent years, spurred on especially by the burgeoning interest in the First and Second World Wars, and further fed by films, documentaries and re-enactments. The collecting scene has moved from the post-war army surplus stores to large dealers, international events and, above all, the internet.

    Arthur Ward is a lifelong collector of toys, models and militaria. Following a career in the visual arts and media, he now concentrates on freelance photography and writing from his home in Sussex. Arthur has appeared on Channel Four's Collector's Lot and BBC 2's James May's Top Toys. He wrote the official history Airfix:Celebrating 50 Years of the Greatest Kits in the World. Together with his writing and collecting interests, Arthur is the founder of www.collecting friends.com, an online community for collectors of toys, models and militaria. Resident - West Sussex Richard Ingram has been involved with the buying and selling of militaria for twenty years, and is an acknowledged authority on the subject. Having started collecting uniforms and ephemera, Richard joined Sabre Sales in the 1980s. His enthusiasm for showing militaria on 'active' display led to his involvement with the D-Day and VE Day 50th Anniversary celebrations. His books [written with Martin J Brayley] include WW11 British Women's Uniforms, Khaki Drill and Jungle Green and The World War 11 Tommy [all published by Crowood]. Resident - Hampshire
