I grew up in London and after some forty years working in the newspaper business I could tell you some stories! With many years experience as a freelance photographer and writer behind me, it’s fair to say I’ve been around a bit. There have been highs and lows (armoured vehicles have left me with some interesting x-rays) but why sit in front of the telly when you can be out there doing stuff? I’ve met some amazing people along the way and had some crazy adventures and life at WHO is never dull.
I have spent a lot of my happiest times on the battlefields of Europe visiting historic sites from down the centuries. Being out there with family and friends is the best part of it and we are always finding new places to go. I tell my kids photography is the only thing I’m good at, but I love writing and have some exciting projects on the go. I hope the book reviews and other stuff I do for WHO give a flavour of my military world.
Numismatics is the study and collection of coins, although some individuals also use the term to describe the study of all coin-like objects, such as medals. A numismatist pursues numismatics on either a professional or hobby level. The modern hobby focuses primarily on machine-struck coins, and collectors enjoy tracking down and acquiring sets and individual coins from all over the world.

An error coin is a coin that was manufactured incorrectly by a mint. Many times called mint errors, error coins come in scores of "shapes, sizes and types." The sheer variety of minted errors adds excitement and uniqueness in collecting them.
Before buying a mint error, knowing the type of coin and the latest selling prices for similar coins is a sound idea.
We all have our favourite moments in cinematic history, those scenes you are first introduced to as a child, but still resonate just as strongly when you’re all grown up. At Prop Store, we have an inventory of literally thousands of genuine, original movie props from many of the best-loved films of all time, to help make your childhood dreams come true. If you’re looking for your very own secret serviceman’s rifle from James Bond: You Only Live Twice, we can make that happen; or a Scottish clansman’s shield from the historical war epic Braveheart – it’s yours. Perhaps a bit of comic science-fiction is more your thing? How does the licence plate from Doc Brown’s time machine in Back To The Future Part II strike you?
Our association was formed in 1979 after Colonel Reid Betz spent much of his retirement years creating the non-profit organization. Originally based out of Utah, the home-state of the Browning Brothers and the present Browning Company, the association quickly became a portal through which Browning firearm collectors could exchange information, historical facts and provide a marketplace for rare firearms, parts, accessories and much more.
More than three decades later, the association is stronger than ever. Our membership is worldwide.
Today our club publishes a professional, full-color 48-page bimonthly magazine, stages an annual CANvention that attracts an average of 1000 members, is involved in a national brewery museum effort, hosts a comprehensive Web site, and has published the hobby's premier beer can reference guide. We've come a long, long way since 1970!
In all likelihood, there's a BCCA Chapter in your state or local area. The club has well over 100 Chapters, both local and at-large, so no matter what you collect or where you live, you can find and meet collectors who share your collecting passion. If you're into collecting almost anything connected with beer and breweries, you belong in the BCCA.
