The Militaria Shop is the Internet Guide to buying and collecting Militaria. It aims to offer a selection of quality articles about collecting, buying militaria and military museums, from a wide selection of authors, collectors, dealers and historians.
Started by collector and amateur historian Lenny Warren, who as well as creating the Militaria Collectors Network and having been a collector for over 40 years, writes a monthly column in the UK Militaria magazine, The Armourer. The popular column is entitled… “Militaria for sale… Lenny Warren trawls the internet to find bargains, rare, interesting or bizarre items of militaria.” We will publish older back issues of this column here but check out The Armourer for all the current columns.
If you are a dealer and have any bargains, rare, interesting or bizarre items of militaria that you would like Lenny to consider for inclusion in an upcoming column, please get in touch. Click here to send a message.

The Militaria Shop is part of The Militaria Collectors Network, or MCN, which was setup in 1998, it’s aims have always been to bring together militaria collectors and dealers from all over the world so that they may share knowledge and experience in our mutual hobby.
It really came about because of the disillusionment of a few collectors who were finding that the internet was of no real help if you had a problem or query. The internet seemed to be full of spam, adverts and the like, with no sense of camaraderie. What was needed was a group that offered help, advice, fake alerts, recommendations of honest dealers (as well as warning of bad ones!) and a friendly atmosphere.
The main advantages of the MCN is that we are a group of committed collectors who really care about our hobby. We strive to help our members find out about unidentified items within their collections, trade/sell between ourselves, share information etc. Above all, we care about sharing knowledge and promoting the study of military history and collecting militaria.
