I recently applied for a firs time FAC which I got everything I wanted and was provided very quickly which I was pleased with.
However I was refused a pre 1919 pistol, section 7.3. I was told this need to be part of an already exciting collection.
I have an interest in ww1 history and have spent many a time on the continent visiting historic sites but I do not have collection of badges or uniforms.
Has anyone come across this? What did they do to show their interest and collection.
