Thank you for allowing me to join your group.


My name is Rick and collect different military items. Helmets, bayonets, field gear, uniforms, and some personal effects. Anywhere from eastern block (mainly East German), WW2 (mainly U.S. but some German too) to current U.S. military equipment, uniforms and in between periods. I'm also a crazy nut about the U.S. Civil War primarily uniforms, equipment, and how they were made. Federal and Confederate. I can't afford to buy them so I research them instead.


I look forward to expanding my knowledge via these forums. From what I've already seen there is hours and hours of research that I can't wait to peruse.


Thank you

Hello Rick, welcome to the forum! East German is a theme it bring me back to my youth, living then only 8 kilometres away from the iron curtain.

Thanks Mikie,


I'll definitely go and check out the World Military Forum.


Thanks Backtheattack,


I was collecting East German stuff when I was younger too. Mainly because it was so cheap and plentiful. It must of been interesting and I'm sure a little scary living so close to the wall.

American Civil War has always been my first passion. Glad to have another Civil War guy on the forum.
