Paul & Jay
Welcome you to the
Military Man Website
We have been dealing on a professional level since 1995, after Jay had served 15 years in the British Army with the 3rd Battalion of the Queens Regiment & the 2nd Battalion of the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment (PWRR)
We would travel the globe digging and diving for battlefield relics and traded under the name of ‘Dug Up’.
However, times and trends have changed. There are too many illegal diggers out there excavating gravesites and hallowed ground, bringing disrepute to the hobby.
Many of the laws have changed, which has made it even harder to obtain legal search permission. We have moved forward with a new image, continuing to travel the four corners of the earth searching for good quality military collectables, via the vast network of diggers, pickers, dealers and collectors we have had the privilege of meeting over the past 30 plus years.
Paul has over 35 years of experience in sales, knowing just how to deal with our customer’s needs. Jay is our resident expert and a qualified E.O.D Bomb Disposal Technician IMAS Level III EOD. All of our INERT ordnance will come with an INERT F.F.R (Free From Explosives) certificate, stating how the item was rendered INERT and how it complies with UK Law. We offer this F.F.E certification service to museums, collectors and anyone who is going to display INERT ordnance in a public place. Please use the ”Contact Us” button in the menu bar to email us about this service.
Even though we have been in the business for nearly 30 years, we will never know everything and still get it wrong sometimes. Especially when it comes to the 3rd Reich items, which are now being faked into oblivion. It is thought there are more Knights Crosses in circulation today than ever awarded.
There is nothing like holding the item in your hands, showing likeminded friends or even visit one of the many forums on line before you make the final decision to add it to your collection. This is why we offer a 14-day no-quibble approval period in which you can return an item for any reason for a full refund (less postage) providing the item is received in the same condition it was sent. You can buy from us with confidence rest assured.

We are looking for a lost boy to join us.
As the position is more a way of life rather than a job, you would be required live in with all found. (food, accommodation & amenities, wi-fi etc) It would best suit someone who has nothing in life as this becomes everything. Great if your dossing on a friends sofa. If you have ties and commitments then this would not be for you.
The only requirement is that you really want to be with us and you do what you are told when you are told. We will get you a driving licence, passport, scuba qualification ( if you want them) and more travel than British Airways LOL.
We don’t care what you have done in your previous life, as the day you start with us would be the 1st day of the rest of your life. Best not apply if you have any sex offences on your rap sheet, as people with them tend to have accidents when around us.
So if you fancy long hours with little money and can stand weeks on the road bumming around Europe, or the heat in Asia then drop us a mail. Don’t hold back telling us about your past-better we know before we start so we can counter measure it when applying for visa’s to certain Countries. It does not mean we would not employ you, it just lets us know where you can and can’t go.
