Selous Scouts items

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

This is a bit of a round about question, but rather than just post something in the classifieds, I thought I would check what sort of interest is out there with respect to Selous Scouts items. I collected heavily to the unit, but have not done much with it for several years. Instead, I am collecting to my own regiment. So, is there much interest out there for people wanting items?

 

Cheers,

 

James

I berlieve we have a number of members in southern Africa but am not sure what their collecting interests are.  OTOH, dependiong on where you were thinking od selling, I suspect you would fins a lot of interest in Selous items, as such 'elite' units seem to fetch a real premium among some collectors.  Good luck.

Not my field of collecting but I am sure someone will be interested, this Unit appears to have a big following in the collectors world and having checked various sites appears to sell quickly when listed.

Perhaps you could show some of the items in a relevant thread to gain Members interest. I would certainly like to see original examples.

All the Best, Simon.

Sorry Peter,

Must have been typing at the same time!

Simon.

Hi James, in terms of the Selous Scouts there is a worldwide following for items from the unit. I for one, hold a few medal groups to them. 

Cheers

Thanks for the replies!

Just to give you an idea of what I have, here is a shot of the majority of things I have. There are a few other things that are not shown here, but you'll get the idea.

Cheers,

James

Surely the uniform to Reid-Daly will be will be a much sought after item for Unit Collectors, a very famous Man within the Selous Scouts I understand.
