Colchester Militaria Ltd is a UK based company which started from humble beginnings - Tom the owner and founder of the company who started off his passion for history from an early age, when his mum and Dad took him to visit the local army Surplus with his pocket money, to buy his first shovel and 24hour ration pack. All of this would later involve Tom using his mum and dads garden shed as a place to buy and sell Army surplus from.
In Early December 2009 Tom began to work with a company called Barndoor Media who bought and sold aircraft parts as well as hire to the film industry's. Tom later went on to help scrap various aircrafts including a Mig Fighter Jet. As pictured to the right >>
On the 09th July 2014 the Business name Colchester Militaria was formed after Tom attended a private auction at the National Army Museum in Chelsea London and bought what appeared to be his life savings worth of Militaria.
Colchester Militaria began to trade at Military Shows and at the time what was known as Arms Fairs (now known as militaria fairs). Colchester Militaria even ran its own Militaria fair for some time held at Stanway Village hall in Colchester Essex.
After discussing the concept of these Shows with his family it was decided that the Family would set up there own show which would become known as Temple at War - which is situated in the village of Cressing - 2miles from Braintree town center, Colchester Militaria is well known to frequent the "wheat barn" in its usual spot. Brother Edd would later go on to running a military adverting company called MuzzleClub.com - which Colchester Militaria advertises with.
Colchester Militaria now have a comprehensive web site which sells over 600 lines of military surplus and antiques, a physical shop, and we attend shows and visit all over Europe to buy and sell. We have even created our own brand of Maintenance, cleaning and hunting sporting goods called IronCowboy. As an evolving business we are constantly developing new items improving existing lines and adding amazing products and services to our business.
