    Wow, What a treasure

              Really a fantastic collection and very nicely displayed. I also had quite a bit of ordnance back in the day including a very nice magnetic mine. Your British warning signs and the butterfly bombs are truly amazing. Never had seen the bombs before. Thanks for sharing, Regards Barry D.

                Thank you for the additional compliments guys, I appreciate it. Unfortunately I've run out of room to display things, so a lot is stored in boxes now. I have the makings of almost 100 different mannequins (not all complete yet), but nowhere to display them. Someday I will buy a house on a large lot where I can build my private museum building in the back yard.

                Unfortunately no. I definitely need to get back to that someday, or pay someone with the skills to do it right.

                Yes Mark, original, otherwise it would not be in the collection. It's one of the examples that came out of the L.R.D.G. commander Major General David Lloyd Owen stores find.

                Thanks. Ordnance is definitely not for everyone, but even though I am not normally a technical person, I find it to be one of the most interesting aspects of the war. Besides, there would be no modern war without the existence of weapons and ordnance. I would love to have seen your magnetic mine. I am still hoping to someday get that minty one I was outbid on several years ago.

                                That is one very, very, very impressive display / collection that rivals some museums I'm sure!
