Collecting militaria simply means collecting military items, whether that’s military uniforms, military medals, military photographs or military books. War and the military can be a fascinating subject for collectors, especially for those who have faced combat in the past. For them, it allows them to look back on their time in the military, reminiscing on both the good and the bad. Past wars can also be an intriguing subject for anyone who has an interest in history. War has an intrinsic ability to shape society, to change the way it functions and the way people live their lives. History buffs may collect militaria as a way to discover more about the past, learning more about war and its effects on both sides of the conflict. Militaria collections can be vast, or they can be focused – it all depends on the collector. The type of items collected may be rare, some may even be priceless. The scope of items collected can also be wide ranging, again depending on what the collector finds interesting. For some collectors, that may mean focusing on one particular war, such as World War I or World War II. For other collectors, it may mean collecting military items from one specific country, whether that’s Australia or Britain, France or Germany, the United States or Japan.
