I have always been interested in Australian History and Australia’s Military History and started collecting Militaria in High School. As most collectors do, I had a bit of this and a bit of that, so in 1974 I decided to concentrate on all things RAAF.

Over the ensuing years I have built up a reasonable collection of RAAF items ranging from pre war to current day. From aircraft parts to uniforms and everything in between.

I have been participating in displays at Arms Fairs, RAAF Open Days and other community events for some 30 years.


This site is dedicated to those that serve and those that preserve.



This museum exists electronically only.


Under construction.

Rhys, I was not aware that they had discontinued the AFB Utility jacket. I have never seen one for sale either. AFBlue items are rather rare at the moment. Regards, Lindsay.

Hello, recently I've been in the search for an SD-AFB Utility Jacket. However, they no longer produce them and I can't seem to find them anywhere. Would you maybe have an idea where I could find them?

I am told that utility jackets are still currently being worn.

Hello I am wondering if you are adding to your collection of cuff links. I have some eagle and crown gold ones I came across today at a thrift store. Your museum has been great to learn from.
