Marshall was a Captain with the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers and on retirement went onto be a respected local huntsman, historian and nature expert, writing for the Rochdale Observer for over 40 years. With his love of history he amassed a collection of historical, military arms and armour related items and was known for his noted collection of Lancashire Fusillers Insignia. On his death in 2012 his collection was passed to his son Mr Jeremy Marshall who also took over the family business ‘Towers of Rochdale’ which was established in the early 1900s and sold guns and country pursuit items. Jeremy was a prominent figure in the firearms industry and adviser to some government and business agencies but sadly passed away in November 2020. He had continued adding to his late father’s military collection with some quite unique items** Sn 18651
