New member from Canada

Post by Steve Nick » Sun Mar 15, 2020 6:28 pm

I'd like to introduce myself to the members of this forum.

I've been collecting since the late 60's. Primarily headgear of the German Army from 1871 to 1945 but as with most collectors I've been diverted by edged weapons, medals etc. My focus for most of these years was Imperial Germany and had about 60 pickelhaubes at one point. A few years ago I decided to downsize and now have about 20 Pickelhaubes and Stalhelms some of which require some restoration or the correct parts.

I also research the Canadian Expeditionary Force in The Great War and published a history of the 21st Battalion C.E.F. back in 2008. Now working on the history of the 5th Battalion (Western Cavalry) C.E.F.

Looking forward to interacting with some of the members of this forum and benefiting from the expertise that's evident by reading some of the post here.

Cheers:

Steve

You probably have a couple of years on me. I started when I was still in high-school about 1972 or so.
