My name is Bas and I live in the Netherlands (Europe). I started collecting militaria in the 80's, in the 90's my collection disappeared in storage boxes and saw the light of day again around 2013. I sold all the British stuff, kept some German militaria but really started collecting US WW II ETO militaria. Now, after 5 years, my US collection has considerably grown to a small museum-like collection, I live in the epic centre of the WW II ETO, just 40 minutes from Hürtgenwald (Hürtgenforest), 1 hour from Bastogne (Battle of the bulge) and 1,5 hour from Arnhem (Market Garden).
I just love US militaria for its diversity and colourfull personal items (toothpaste, shaving cream, K-rations). I'm always in search for new articles to supplement my collection.

I just love British Made stuff
Canteens, canteens, canteens
And I am also a metal-detecting enthusiast and cyclist (road and MTB)
