Militariarg is a website for international militaria and collecting with an emphasis on Argentine militaria from the period between world wars, although we have information from other time periods. We have references to uniforms, equipment, pictures, medals and memorabilia, et cetera.
We intend to create a humble general reference source on Argentine militaria. A uniform guide and identification index based on vintage photographs, pictures and material can be used for that purpose.
The site is purely historical and recreational with no political affiliation whatsoever. Our only aim is to unite collectors through the passion of history and militaria.
We hope that it will be especially useful to those who are just starting to collect or who are founding reenactment groups with their friends. With that in mind we tried to make this site as simple and friendly as possible.
While it is somewhat difficult to get original material of the era, there are elements on the market that can be used as substitutes for gendarmes, horse grenadiers, patricios, cavalry, infantry, artillery, skiers, Chasseurs of the Andes, climbers, mountain troops, marines, paratroopers, armored vehicle crews, hussars, engineers, etc. from the period between wars and especially WWII.
The same can be done with some military vehicles through restoration,
reproductions and replicas of weapons. We also hope that those subject
matter experts can help with data so that this space continues to grow and,
above all, enhance the data. While we know Argentina has remained neutral
following the tradition of non-belligerency, it had a well-structured
military machine, though compact with respect to the standards of the European countries whose styles and techniques it had copied. It had even purchased equipment from the varied countries. We hope that this will serve as a guide for those who have military items of both Argentine and international origins.
This site will be evolving as we add more information so keep checking back.
Thank you very much.
