Welcome to The Funk Hole


About me

Welcome to The Funk Hole, a source of reproduction paperwork for sale that primarily relates to the Great War of 1914-18. My name is Andrew Upton, here you can read a little about myself, what services I offer, and how to get in touch to discuss what I can do for you.

Latest news - as the hell that has been 2020 comes to a close I have been busy making more 1941/42 type AB439's, introducing the Boer War Description Card, and planning a few new projects as always, including expanding my WW2 range. Please look out for updates and changes.

I have been a Great War re-enactor since 2002, and have been replicating items of paperwork for living history purposes since 2005. This was originally for my own personal use, a good example being my replica of the 1918 pattern AB439 Officer's Record of Services after I was "commissioned" into the Vickers Machine Gunners Society 1914-45. At that time there was nobody who supplied any copy of this key item of kit, and so armed with an original borrowed from a friend, a keen eye for detail and a strong desire to do the best possible job I could resulted (after many hours of work) in what I believe to be the first all-new production of this particular book since the end of the war.

The results drew praise and interest from similar parties when seen, and inspired me to try to do more of the same but on a wider scale. And so The Funk Hole was born.

I enjoy a challenge when it comes to recreating long obsolete items of paperwork, so if you can't see what you're looking for and can provide an original to work from I can usually work something out!

To get in touch with me, simply send me an email using the address on the Contact page, and I'll make sure to get back to you.
