Welcome To Richard Underwood Militaria

SERVING THE RE-ENACTMENT COMMUNITY FOR OVER 30 YEARS.  As a re-enactor myself I have always been enthusiastic about WWII German uniforms and equipment. What started out as a passion for collecting and a hobby turned into a full time business back in 1985, and I still have the same dedication to authenticity and quality 30 years later. The kit we supply is in many cases exclusive to us. We have recently extended our range to include Insignia and an even wider range of Field Equipment. We hope that you will like the items we have on offer .

Richard Underwood is combining forces with Soldier of Fortune ltd.

Over the last couple of months I have been busy restocking the popular product lines after last year’s shows and I have had some new items made which are starting to arrive.


In the coming months I plan to have more new items in stock like EREL made crusher caps and M43 field caps and high quality handmade leather ankle boots.


Last year I was busy with film work again, which did have an effect on the web site as I did not have as much time as I would have liked to develop new items etc. but this year I have decided to make some changes to help alleviate any issues that may have arisen whilst I was away on film sets.


I can now announce that Soldier of Fortune Ltd will hold my re-enactment stock in an allocated section of their warehouse and they will dispatch my orders. All orders will be fulfilled with my current stock and will continue to be sourced by myself from my trusted suppliers.


Web site management and order fulfilment will be undertaken by Soldier of Fortune Ltd. to minimise any delays with your order, should I be away working on a film set


With the extra time that I will now have, I will not only be able to take on more film work, but also develop new products and improve quality where necessary. This should enable me to offer only the best quality German reproductions to you.


Over the coming weeks Solider of Fortune will be adding my quality reproductions onto their own web site www.sofmilitary.co.uk All items will be clearly marked in the title as Richard Underwood Militaria (R.U.M.). So you can now buy from either website. My full range of German WW2 reproductions will be on the original web site  www.richardaunderwood.com  and the best selling and popular items will also be on  www.sofmilitary.co.uk Whichever web site you order from you will get the same Richard Underwood Militaria (R.U.M.) product.


I will still be attending militaria shows in the UK but I will only have my original items for sale on the stall. Soldier of Fortune will have a range of Richard Underwood Militaria reproductions at all the shows that they attend, dates and locations are detailed on their website.


Rest assured anything under the Richard Underwood Militaria brand will be made to my standards so you can be guaranteed of it’s continuing quality.
