With more than 80 years experience as a family run business buying and selling army surplus and associated products, we have established a system for (almost!) getting it right.

Working with trusted suppliers - some for over 50 years - we can typically include discounts of 5% to 25% (off RRP) into our prices.

With three generations of knowledge when 'buying in' stock, we know and understand the ‘science of surplus’ - few others really do.  And that’s a fact! 

We also have valued lines of commercially made items and carry large stocks of boots, clothing, work wear, military accessories, and general camping kit etc.

Our QC - quality control - is pretty much second-to-none. Each surplus item we sell is checked and re-checked. And then checked again, just to make sure.

With our famous in-house fix and repair team – F.A.R.T for short – you are guaranteed to get a reasonable product.  

If you cannot find what you want on the website, then please contact us - or even better call in, as a visit is always worthwhile with a ‘heads up’ proving fruitful, particularly if travelling distance.

Feel free to take advantage of our in-store ‘personal shopper service’ - it will save you time and we guarantee to give you the best possible attention and guidance to fulfil your needs. Try it!
