Our Journey
Our Journey

“For as long as I can recall I have always been fascinated by the past and in particular, the Second World War. This goes as far back to when I was around five or six years old when I became engrossed in my fathers old Warlord and Commando Annuals.

Learning about the tumultuous events of the Second World War had a profound impact on me as a child and I yearned to learn more about this remarkable period in history.

My interest in the period has never diminished and has grown ever more extensively over the years as I began to collect a wide range of rare and varied collectibles from the era.

After long deliberation, I decided to take the bold step to turn my life's passion into my profession and consequently, Finest Hour came to be. Happily, this enables me to fully immerse myself amongst all the beautiful things that continue to excite me and bring me so much pleasure.

I sincerely hope our website and the many special items we offer for sale bring you the same sense of joy, nostalgia and wonderment."
