About Me

I'm a framer, mainly of militaria. I'm also a collector of cap badges.

I have a special interest in the Irish badges (its in the genes, gran'dad was a Murphy from the Republic!)

I have put together a display of Fusilier Regiments already and i want to expand this to include the Irish with some shamrock. I also have a good display of Britsh head gear under an acrylic cube.

If you would like to see any of these items, just email me and i''l attach some and return.

I have been intrested in the Great War since I was able to read, my grandfather had a collection of books on the war and I suppose i got interested through looking at the pictures in them. I try to get to France every year for July 1st and on 3 occasions I have laid wreathes at Lochmagar to remember the dead of Athy and South Kildarehe

About Me

Greetings My interest in this web site stems from my interest in collecting old photographs. I have a photo album from WW1 which was given to me by Tommy Byers who was in WW1 back in 1976. Tommy was a resident of our family rest home. Tommy was in the 9th Bn Black Watch Royal Highlanders during the war. Tommy gave me his photo album which he had collected photos during the war and has 300 images in this beautiful album which I have cherished ever since he had given it to me. Now I am doing research and a lot of it. Most of the photos are named and dated from 1909 to 1919. I hope to share the images with the world so that other people can gain some knowledge of WW1.
