The Collection of the Late Private Colin Blackburn

The Collection of the Late Private Colin Blackburn

In our November Militaria Auction we will be selling the collection of the Late Private Colin Blackburn (22865758), who served with the 1st Battalion Oxford & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry 1953-55. He was in the No.1 Platoon ‘A’ Coy, as Bren Gun Carrier Driver for Lt David Stanley.

Pt Blackburn was a very keen collector of militaria, collecting badges, swords, firearms, uniforms and more. He would go around Antique shops and fairs picking up anything that took his eye. Even managing to purchase some of the items while on holiday with his wife.

His collection has been split up into the various sections throughout the sale and the firearms will be sold at a future auction.
