I have started buying miniatures and while I have not yet got any decent groups , (just acouple of pairs and single ones). I was wondering if this would be the correct place on GMIC to post pics and info about any I may get, if not please direct me to the correct place....I have been buying and selling anything and everything for 20 years and I collect militaria and then sell my collection and start on something new...I recently sold my last collection and have started buying miniatures and full size medals...

CJB - as Paddywhack said - any British Medals. Miniatures are often neglected as a field of collecting - although I have noticed that there

is more interest in recent year, with the rising costs of full size groups. Mervyn

Hi, a nice couple of groups there guys :) the miniatures I'm buying are only british...I have been across the minefield of third reich collecting and I'm not going back!!!

The cost factor is part of my reason plus I am limited for display space...And I think some of the bigger groups are attributable so an interesting form of research as well..I will post pics this evening of the couple I have....chris

Miniatures purchased today from a car boot sale for £15 ....The 1914 trio appear to have been mounted together at some time but have been separated ..there is also a

ww2 defence and war medal with the same residue from the mounting (see top of ribbon to victory medal) so it seems it was mounted as a group of 5.P1010022_zps9d3b294e.jpg

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
