Hi I'm Gareth Nicholas, a New Zealander living in Victoria, Australia.
I have created this site to share my collections with anyone interested and from it I hope to meet other collectors with which to share information, pictures and interests.
Military & military aviation has always be an interest to me and this lead me to start seriously collecting in 2006.
These are my collections:
No. 1 - New Zealand, Australian, Canadian & British Military Aircrew Flying Badges from all eras (this is slowly expanding to other countries);
No. 2 - New Zealand Military Ranks, Badges and Insignia worn after 1990ish
No. 3 - New Zealand Emergency & Public Service Ranks, Badges and Insignia
No. 4 - Uniforms related the these collections.
I also have a small collection of other items. These include items from my short period of service in the RNZAF during the late nineties and items of friends who have serviced
I also enjoy hunting, fishing and model 1/72 scale World War 2 aircraft.
So please enjoy my collections and feel free to contact me. I am always interested in meeting other collectors and see their collections. Any comments, questions, photos and feedback are most welcome.
I am always interested in considering any items you may have for Sale, Trade or Donation.
In saying that, I wish to thank all those who have added to my collection in either items or knowledge. I would especially like to thank those who have made donations to my collection and to those who have been happy to share their knowledge and collections with me.
