hi chris, sorry ive not been around on here i forgot my pass word when i moved my computer and stuff to this new house, just today finally remembered it and had to pay my year dues so im back...

anyway the milipass collection all started by a fluke,

i was buying ww2 soldbuchs and wherpass and one day i got a 3 pack his ww1 millipass and his 2 ww2 ids sold/wherp.

i loved the ww1 one and it had a ton more info then the ww2 ids so then and there i quit the ww2 paper chase and threw all i had into ww1 ids.

now after i think about 6 or 7 years i have a total of 545 ww1 ids in my collection. im shooting for 1,000 so i have a ways to go, but its fun and very interesting to try and read them......

thxs again for the help in the past. i hope to get more great pics and stuff posted soon

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts...

It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
