I started collecting nearly 30 years ago with my focus being World War 2 USAAF and US Army uniforms, field gear, insignia and headgear. Living in East Anglia has certainly been an inspiration, particularly with the region’s involvement with the US 8th Air Force.
As time has progressed, my interests moved into the D-Day Overlord Landings in Normandy. Visiting the Normandy invasion area many times has gradually shifted my collection into World War 2 RAF and British and US Airborne items.
With a growing collection and an increasing obsession, Harris Militaria was born!
The website holds a diverse stock from the First World War up to the Present Day. I specialise in Allied militaria – this relating to the Allies of World War 2.
Items are all original unless stated otherwise. You will find items to suit all budgets and I strive to find good quality items that I would happily have in my own collection. Items are described accurately and supported by quality photos. If you need another photo from a different angle etc. just let me know. My aim is that you’ll receive exactly what you expect.
The world of collecting militaria is one of the most interesting, diverse and exciting. There is always something new to learn or research and it’s a good window into history. Follow @harrismilitaria on Instagram and @harrismilitariauk on Facebook where you will find posts with new stock and interesting items.
If you see something that you’re interested in, you can either buy immediately (don’t let it get away!) or please contact me with any queries. I attend fairs occasionally where it’s always great to meet customers and discover new things.
Harris Militaria is always looking for items to buy so if you have something that might be of interest let me know.
Being a collector, I’m always looking for Normandy-related and USAAF 467th Bomb Group (H) items.
I look forward to hearing from you!
