German WWII memorabilia collection

The Wheatcroft Collection is believed to include the world's largest collection of German WWII memorabilia. Its value has been estimated at £100 million. Wheatcroft acquired his first item at age five, a bullet-marked SS storm trooper's helmet, which he had asked his parents to give him for his birthday. At age 15, he bought three Second World War Jeeps with money given to him by his grandmother for his birthday. He restored them and sold them at a profit, using the money to buy more vehicles and a tank. Wheatcroft sleeps in a bed once owned by Adolf Hitler but says "I've changed the mattress".
