Antiques Roadshow update

The family of Colonel Oliver Keef, the gentleman who appeared with the collection of soldiers on Antiques Roadshow, have now published on You Tube a six minute video shot in May 2013 of him telling the story of the collection and how it was made and used.  I was particularly interested to hear that his grandfather George had been buried at sea in 1901 with a battery of artillery and some infantry in his coffin. There are also some further pictures of the figures themselves.
