Lots from medals to military vehicles are being sought for The Tank Museum’s Militaria Auction.
The auction, run by Duke’s of Dorchester, will be the highlight of The Tank Museums inaugural Militaria Fair on 6th November 2021. The ability to bid and watch will be available both live in the room and online.
The auction already features a number of high-profile items, but the auctioneers are eager to reach out to militaria collectors and vehicle owners who would like to sell items from their collections.
Julian Smith militaria specialist at Dukes said: “A large collection of Churchill Memorabilia has already been consigned for the Auction. The provenance is Mr Sheppard who was Winston Churchill’s Nurse in late 1950s and lived with him at Chartwell.
“The Colin Hornsey Medal Collection dating from Victorian conflicts up until Iraq and Afghanistan will total around 250 lots. Online streaming and bidding allowed for international audiences and leads to exciting bidding on the day!
For those looking to view the auction before the 6th the lots will be on display at the Tank Museum from the 3rd-5th.”
The Tank Museum’s Head of Marketing Nik Wyness said; “We are very excited about this new Militaria Fair, and hosting the Dukes auction alongside other traders in militaria, collectables and reproduction items.”
