Find Of The Week - Militaria Leather Cigar Case Of 2805 William Francis 2nd Battalion Norfolk Regiment 1891 - 1914
Welcome one and all to this week's "Blog Post Monday"! I hope you're all keeping safe and well.
Sometimes in this job you stumble across things that are just that extra bit special and this week, I'm pleased to say that happened to me! With lockdown ongoing, we're stuck to searching for our treasures online and this week, while perusing the wonders of the web, I stumbled across a super piece of militaria history. A personalised leather cigar case which shows the postings of W.Francis of the Norfolk Regiment from 1891 to 1904.
I'm excited about it and because I'm excited about it, I intend to tell you all about it! So, this week's blog post is about a leather cigar case and my search to find out who W.Francis of the Norfolk Regiment was.
So, get that kettle on, buckle up and get ready to travel back in time with me to meet the man himself...
Hello again and happy Monday to you all! It's been another busy week here at Source Vintage HQ and I have found yet another exciting item which I just had to share with you. It's both exciting and rather emotional actually, and this is why I love my job. Antiques are pieces of history and each item holds its own story. Who's owned the item? What has it seen...? They really do bring history to life.
This week it was two pieces of World War 2 Memorabilia that I found. Two children's Air Raid Identity Bracelets. I've never seen one, let alone two, and I'm on a mission to reunite them with their respective families. This is where I need your help!
So, you know what to do by now. Kettle on, proper brew, feet up and let me tell you about another very special find...
Well, hello there! I hope your week has been as good as mine! Now, I don't know about you, but I'm always on the look out for the next treasure, no matter where I am. You never know when or what you might find and that is the thrill of this job I guess. Jewellery, miniatures, militaria, toys, novelty items, you name it, I look for it.
This week, I was very, very, very lucky. I found something truly special, and finds like this don't happen everyday. In fact, I'm still so excited about it that I thought I might dedicate this week's blog post to it! So, as always, stick that kettle on, get yoursel' a brew, put those feet up and let me tell you about this week's star find...
