Hello again Acheux,
Is there anything in particular that you are looking for,  I may have items that would be of interest. I know you have given a list in your post, but just was interested to know if there was specific things that you wanted. Is it only medals that you are interested in, or are there other artefacts that might 'tickle your fancy' ;D.
Cheers for now. Ballykeel

Hi again Ballykeel and thanks for the reply.

I collect mainly medals to the Ulster Division - Irish Rifles, Irish Fusilier and Inniskillings but the Rifles and the regiments of line are my 'thing'.

83rd & 86th Regiments of Foot, the Irish Rifles, Ulster Rifles, Irish Rangers and UDR and then the modern Royal Irish.

With my interest in the Great War, anything associated with the UVF or YCV of that period, political items, badges, buttons, armbands - uniforms if I can get them, would be good.

Saying that, I have a great interest in local military and social history, so just about anything!!

I have my own private collection and I am not a dealer - that is why I can offer full book prices - not looking to make profit!!

PM me if you don't want to disclose what you may have?

Best Wishes,

Acheux.

Thanks for prompt reply Acheux,
With all that's goin on I'm nearly scared to say, yea I will go the PM route, I do think I have items that would be of interest, and it's good that someone like yourself is keeping a record, you must be a real 'hive' of knowledge ;D.
Cheers for now, will try to get PM to you, that's providing I dont make a total 'bo***cks of it ;D. Ballykeel
