Funksammler Militaria was born out of a lifelong passion for collecting WW2 militaria. During his long career as a collector, Remco's focus was mainly on communication equipment and on the Normandy battles and Western front campaigns of 1944 and over the years the collection grew to include many amazing items. Remco now wants to make the collection more focussed which means he can offer some of these amazing items to other passionate collectors. Remco has used the "Funksammler" nom de plume for many years on various internet fora to share his experience of collecting and restoring Wehrmacht communications equipment.
Tommy Atkins has long been the name given to the British soldier. Called 'Tommy' by friend and foe alike, the British soldier was respected for his bravery and stoicism. With over 6 million men serving in the British armed forces in WW1 most of us have strong family links to that struggle. Tommy was more than a soldier. He was family, a friend or a neighbour risking his life in defence of his country and believing in the justice of his cause.
"When I started to look around at companies to change over from my old web site Antiques Web Design by ph9 came highly recommended. They are happy to meet and chat about who they are, what they do, and more importantly what you require. They got us up and running in a very short space of time and helped out in many ways giving advice, helping with technical questions and talking to us in a way the average person would understand it . They are always ready to take your call in a friendly, bright & cheerful manner regardless of what the issues are. They go the extra steps to make sure you’re happy. We can’t recommend them enough."
"My previous website was restricted and frustratingly indistinct from my competitors. ph9 have provided a far more interesting and dynamic platform for my business that I am able to modify and adapt with ease. The result is a more professional appearance and increased sales."

"“The modern design is simple and clean, helping to provide an easy to use website for both myself and customers. PH9 are always fast and responsive on the rare occasions that assistance is needed!”"

Tom started collecting nearly 30 years ago with his focus being World War 2 USAAF and US Army uniforms, field gear, insignia and headgear. Living in East Anglia has certainly been an inspiration for Tom, particularly with the region’s involvement with the US 8th Air Force. As time has progressed, Tom's interests moved into the D-Day Overlord Landings in Normandy. Visiting the Normandy invasion area many times has gradually shifted his collection into World War 2 RAF and British and US Airborne items. With a growing collection and an increasing obsession, Harris Militaria was born! The website holds a diverse stock from the First World War up to the Present Day. It specialises in Allied militaria – this relating to the Allies of World War 2.
