Hi All,
New member to the forum from North Wales, PA, which is just outside of Philly. Have actually been browsing your forum for a year or so, but just finally signed up. 

Have always had an interest in history, and have been collecting militaria for going on 13 years now. At present, I only have one Lee Enfield; a sporterized SMLE MKIII, dated 1916. I used to shoot it often, until .303 became too expensive Big smile

My main focus is US militaria. Photo of my collection room below. I post regularly under the same name on usmilitariaforum.com and warrelics.eu. 

I honestly joined this forum to sell a Lee Enfield Sniper Transit Chest that I picked up a year ago. Hoped to one day find a nice scoped Lee Enfield rifle to compliment the case, but a grouping fresh out of the woodwork named to a vet with the 101st Airborne (501st PIR) recently landed in my lap, and I need to fund the purchase. 

I figured what better place to rehome the chest, than a Lee Enfield collecors forum! 

In any case, thanks for having me, an I'm sure I'll continue to be a lurker even if I sell the chest. 

Eric

Welcome!
I must say that you have a great collection. Thanks for posting. I have very little US stuff; only a Coleman stove, a leather flying helmet and a couple of 1944 105 she!! cases
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Thanks; much appreciated! Sounds like you have some great items yourself. Any history on the items, or just picked up along the way?

Thanks! I started with rifles, and that quickly evolved into helmets, then uniforms, patches, etc. 

I wound up selling the chest on eBay. Appreciate the kinds words.
