Military Paperwork & Ephemera is covered through our specialist auctions of the subject which take place two times a year. This section covers all historical documents, archives, and personal handwritten diaries and letters.

Items from historical events are very popular with both private collectors and institutions. During the Great War, one of the most famous events to take place was the Christmas Truce of 1914; On 30th March 2016 we sold an archive of documents which included a handwritten account of the Christmas truce, this grouping was sold to a private collector for £5,000.

Historical documents are often a one-off item and they can shed light on personal feelings about a particular time or event.
