This page (and this web-site) is dedicated to
(1964 - 2008)
On December 30th,
2008 the terrible news was made public by Jean-Philippe Borg, his friend and
Laurent Huart had passed away on Christmas day 2008.
He made a great difference in my life.
Reposer en paix, mon Ami. Rest in Peace my friend
In 2002, I had a difficult period in my
life (burn-out) and collecting militaria had lost my interest.
I couldn't focus and I didn't know what to do with my hobby... I collected militaria of all kind but it wasn't much fun....
Then, by coincidence, I stumbled across a
magazine called Militaria Magazine and inside was an article:
La 2. Panzerdivision en Normandie, juin 1944
I bought the Magazine and (although I can't read French very well) I was pleasantly surprised by the article:
A well written article with a lot of good pictures of mannequins, weapons and equipment.
This magazine changed my life as it
suddenly became clear to me, I was going to focus on equipment and try to get
all the equipment
(and some of the weapons) as shown in the article........
Also it was then that I decided to make this web-site
After that I met Jean-Phillippe and Laurent on the Wehrmacht Equipment Forum and had very pleasant contact with both of them.
Since then I bought every Militaria Magazine with equipment articles from them (I will make a list of them) and the fun in collecting was back.
As time passed I became sort of friends with Laurent and Jean-Philippe and you can imagine I was shocked to hear of Laurent's death.
I will continue work on this web-site in honour of Laurent Huart, he will not be forgotten !
Reposer en paix, mon Ami.
