NZ Antique Arms Association - Wellington Branch
The Wellington Branch is one of 12 Incorporated Branches of the National Association – NZ Antique and Historical Arms Association Inc – and has, for more than 20 years become synonymous with their annual auction of militaria, firearms and other collectibles.
With possibly the cheapest auction house commission rate in the country it has become the first port of call for many of the Association's members throughout the country when it comes to the sale of their collections and surplus items. Cataloguing the items takes a great deal of the members' time and they enjoy seeing new and interesting items that surface from time to time. The annual auction has become a great social gathering and has been the highlight of many a collector's year – especially when they 'win' a long sought after item.
In November each year the Branch hosts a luncheon by way of a thank you for all the time and effort given by the members and is a fitting 'reward' for their efforts.
Each month – except for January - the Branch holds its meeting in the very congenial surroundings of the Petone Workingmens' Club. The monthly displays consist of anything from books, military china and badges to significant military items from collections.
