Hello to you all.

 

My name is Ben and I'm from Perth, Western Australia.

 

I'm 45 yrs old and my main interest is the First Wave of the Normandy landings.

 

I also love collecting WW2 US edged weapons, shoulder patches, medals and collar discs.

 

I am a professional drummer in a cover band, LOVE hiking and love cruising on my motorbike.

 

I am really looking forward to searching interesting topics on here.

 

My Grandfather was in Artillery on the Western Front in WW1 (45th Battery, 12th Field Artillery Brigade, Australian 4th Artillery Division).

 

Kindest and most sincere regards Ben Mills.

Believe it or not, just 3 days ago I was talking to my girlfriend about heading over to Normandy to check out Utah and Omaha beaches.
