Welcome to my website, I specialise in mainly WW2 British and Commonwealth weapons and kit, which is my main passion in life. Though I also sell a wide selection of other army surplus and various interesting and unusual vintage items. I attend all major shows in the country and am a member of the 1940's Roadshow, where I run the fully licensed bar and also have a stall at their events.

This will be the next event I will be trading at will be

Cobbaton Combat VJ weekend

War and Peace 2015


At War and Peace with Tim Isaac and Rob and Barry Miller 

It was good to meet up at W&P, with all the usual suspects. Meeting old customers and friends and making a few new ones. Pity about the rain at the end of the show, but we have had it worse there before. Many purchases were made and lots of new stock came back to Cornwall. Which I am sorting through now and also more new stock from Mr Adler.

Next outing will be the VJ day at Cobbaton, on the weekend 15th 16th August, where I will have the stall. See you there!.
