Club History

Club history

In 1966 a group of enthusiasts; medal collectors, weapon collectors and miltary history enthusiasts met regularly in the Navigation Inn on Lancashire Hill in Stockport and The Stockport and District Arms Collectors’ Society was formed.

The club has flourished from then on and we still have members from these early beginnings. In 1996 the club’s title was changed to Stockport Militaria Collectors’ Society.

The Club today

The club meets on the first Monday of the month (except on Bank Holidays when it moves to the second Monday), at the Shropshire Suite, the Britannia Hotel, Dialstone Lane. Stockport SK2 6AG. There is a programme of speakers which cover the interests of most members and the club also runs its own Arms Fair, currently holding three fairs for 2016.
