A little bit about me just so you can understand my perspective for collecting these rifles and other militaria.
I was born in Ontario, Canada to a mother that was born in Stockport, Cheshire England and a father who was born to parents
from County Cork in Ireland and Austria. My Great Grand Fathers on both sides were in the Great war two for the
English Infantry and the other for the Austrian Calvary and both serving in the Italian theatre of operation. During
the second World War my Grandfather on my mothers side was a foundry worker and as such he was not allowed to fight but was
an air raid warden. My Uncle was in the Royal Navy and was a Landing Craft driver. Soon after the war the family imigrated
to Canada. I spent most of my early life in Canada and moved to the US when I was about 12. I served in
the Army (82nd Airborne Aviation) and then went to NC Wesleyan for criminal justice. Currently I am employed as a Private
Investigator and a Bail Bondsman.
