Militaria & medals

Since Roman times, awards have been bestowed on people for acts of bravery, loyalty and service. At Fieldings we not only understand the historical importance but the sentimental and memorial value, and we want to keep this story alive for future generations. We also sell a vast array of varied related items of militaria and arms and armour dating from Roman times to modern day. Read more
