Welcome to Britton at War

I have been a collector for many years, this culminating in my own museum. Avid and serious military enthusiasts require quality items, and I am able to address this. I have also created strong links with major auction houses, dealers and collectors alike. The time has come for me to expand and offer this service to you, so welcome to BRITTON AT WAR.

I buy and sell all WWII British and German forces items from the humble British button to complete uniforms and if they used it I buy it i.e. badges, uniforms, hats, helmets, boots, letters, photos, medals etc so please LOOK who knows what you will find here!!

We are always looking to buy or acquire new items, so please contact us with anything you feel would be of interest.
