Delving into Britain's wartime history, the Flog It! team offer tips and advice on buying, selling and collecting militaria.
Expert Philip Serrell describes discovering a letter written to his POW grandfather; David Fletcher explains why he would never part with a plaque commemorating his great uncle's death in the Great War; and presenter Paul Martin looks into the history of that most fearsome fighting force, the Ghurkhas.
Trade secrets tip of the day
2014 marks a century since the outbreak of World War I. It’s certain that there will be renewed interest in the conflict and we’ll see a spike in prices for related objects. If you can wait to sell, you’re likely to see a greater return.
Militaria includes everything from guns, to medals, helmets to flags – and all points beyond. Given the sheer scale of this collecting area, you might want to focus on one thing in particular: medals from a single conflict, for example, or insignia from a specific battalion.
