Militaria Focusing on Great Britain
"Sans Changer" - Without Change - comes from the Earl of Derby, who in the early stages of the First World War donated a solid silver cap badge to all enlisted men within the newly recruited Liverpool "Pals" Battalions.
During the 1st World War there was a huge sense of patriotic duty to fight for King and Country. This site aims to tell the stories of the soldiers behind the medals through online research and archival searches. Many people had family and friends that fought in the Great War that have been long forgotten. Search the pages, find a story and read those forgotten memories. We are always eager to hear more and to expand upon the history.
Furthermore, other militaria curios, spanning the years, can be found amongst the pages. Be sure to check back regularly to check out the latest stories, items and articles.
THE MEDAL COLLECTION
Most collectors arrange their focus in "themes". These themes regularly spill over into others and invariably multiply in their own right. Currently there are four primary themes that contribute to the larger collection.
