March issue of The Armourer on sale

d39fb82e-d822-45b7-817d-ceb5eefe439b

The Chindits are the subject of this month's cover feature in the new Armourer, now on sale. We take you back to the jungles of Burma and the intrepid long range penetration units as they sought to create havoc and confusion behind Japanese lines.

To back up the historical article we also look at the uniforms of the men of the jungle, what medals were awarded to British and Commonwealth troops in the Far East, and collecting the K-Ration pack that the men had to live on.

On the classic arms side we're looking at the armies of Victorian-era Britain and Russia, as depicted on collectable cigarette cards, the Battle of the Boyne and the weapons used, the British forces in an ill-advised excursion to Buenos Aires and the shooting guns of Lord Ripon.

For collectors of all things WWII, have a look at the National ID card, the German Infantry Assault Badge and the Haight Fist Gun. There are also features on the weapons of the Congo crisis, the La Mola super fortress in Spain and Pauline Gower, the trailblazing pilot of the ATA. And don't forget those collectable Wound Stripes of WWI.

Throw in our militaria for sale roundup, auction news and sales, book reviews, a reader's collection of NSDAP militaria, your letters and a trip to Newark Air Museum and there's plenty to see you through to the next issue in March.

 

Catch up on militaria news, order a back issue of The Armourer, or pick up the latest issue, in either print or digital format. Like what you see? Why not take out a subscription, save money and have it delivered to your door.
