Just as a matter of interest, I wonder if anyone who visits this Forum knows about - and/or attends - what I consider the best militaria show in Italy, "Militalia".

This is a few minutes cab ride from Milan's Linate airport at an exhibition centre called Novegro.

It's held over the last weekends of May and November each year.

I'll be flying up from Melbourne to attend the one at the end of this month: dealers set up on Friday 25, and its open to the public on Saturday (26) and Sunday (27).

Of course it is heavily Italian, but there is always a lot of German stuff around and I've found some good German Police items there over the years.

I have no financial or other interest in spreading the word, but thought it would be a real pleasure to meet any visitors to this Forum there - in person.
