About me
This page is still under construction, more pictures have been added with more to come over the next few months, and more information on the pics too! please be patient, and hopefully things will be getting near to completion soon. Thank you!

My name is Norman Wood. I have been collecting various things since 1977 when I was 11 and I started picking up car brochures, followed by my first (inert) hand-grenade when I was 12.

I have been married to Heather since 1996 and we live in St Saviour, Jersey with our daughter Alexandra, our son James and a black Labrador called Webley.

We currently possess the following vehicles: 1966 Riley 4/Seventy Two, 1939 Austin Eight Saloon, 2007 Honda Goldwing motorcycle, 2001 Honda Deauville 650 Motorcycle and a 2001 Suzuki Burgman 400 Scooter. (Click here for pictures and info on these and other vehicles I have owned)

My wife and I are collectors of many and varied things, primarily uniforms, badges and insignia of the Militia, Police, Fire Brigades etc, also Railways of the Channel Islands.

Over the course of the last 30 years we have built up a collection of over 3000 car brochures, several hundred car badges, a large amount of enamelled lapel badges of local Channel Islands interest, and a massive collection of reference books.

We are also interested in the following:

CI related insignia in the USA - Jersey County, Guernsey Town etc.
Cap Badges - to match 'Wood' medals and Women's services.
Headgear & Uniforms - women's services.
First World War - Helmets, Medals, Firearms, Trench Art etc.
