Hello from Essex UK

Hello,

My name is my user name, please call me Keith

I am new to this forum but have been a collector for over fifty years.

My interests are in the Allied & Axis special forces units of 1939-1945. Especially those deployed in North Africa, the Aegean and Mediterranean theatres. Units such as the Long Range Desert Group, Indian Long Range Squadron, Popski’s Private Army, Libyan Arab Force, Layforce, Middle East Commando, Special Boat Squadron, Raiding Support Regiment, Special Air Service, Land Forces Adriatic, 2, 9 & 40 Commando, 2nd Independent Para Brigade, Jugoslavia AOL, Italian F Recce, Nembo Regiment, Partisans, SOE, Cichociemni, OSS, First Special Service Force. Italian Saharina Companies, Arditi, Centro Miliare, PAI, Xa Mas, Falgore Paras, 288 Sonderverbande, Brandenburg, Kleinkamphverbande, Sonderverbande Dora, Fallschirmjager. Also, from the Far East the Imperial Japanese Army & Marine Parachute units, Teishin Shudan, Yokosuka SNLFs, Chindits, V Force, MPAJA, D Force, 153 Para, etc.
In addition, from the 1914-1918 war: Imperial Camel Corps, Light Car Patrols, Hejaz Armoured Car Company, TE Lawrence, etc.

I regard myself as a historian, I enjoy research and I collect the cloth and metal insignias, headdress, medals, uniforms, documents, photographs, specialist equipment. Anything considered…

Thank you for reading my introduction, I look forward to communicating with fellow forum members, advancing my knowledge and sharing information.

Enjoy the hobby, Keith
