Despite covid-19 we are open and updating

Tuesday 24th March 2020 at 09:14

We are living in uncertain times and the world is in flux.   The advice on Covid-19 given by the government is changing and we are all having to adapt to a new way of living in order to stay safe and protect our NHS and its invaluable staff.  Whilst the high streets are closing, our online operation is not under the same constraints and as a small independent business, we will be attempting to continue to as 'normal'.  I am therefore delighted to announce that we will be updating the website with new stock this Friday, 27th March 2020 from approximately 20.00hrs (8pm GMT).  You can expect in excess of 170 new items to be added with a wide cross section of kit, equipment and paperwork including photographs, documents and books from a huge collection of USAAF 8th / 9th AAF paperwork purchased earlier in the year.  We expect the update to take around 90 minutes to complete (assuming the internet isn't overwhelmed at that time).  Please remember that nothing is secured until you have completed the 'checkout'.  For speed you may wish to checkout as a 'guest', or log into your account if previously registered, and remember to refresh your browser to view the new stock as it is added.  If you order multiple items, any excess postage paid will be refunded once the orders have been packed.

Please be aware that we are currently able to post orders at our local post office and via our preferred couriers but this situation may change.  We normally despatch on a daily basis but in order to reduce potential contact with others, will now be limiting this to twice a week.  Courier collections may also slow down and all orders are likely to take longer to arrive due to these exceptional circumstances.  We will do our best to get your order to you as swiftly as possible but would ask for your patience and understanding.  In the event of all deliveries being suspended we will store your order until it is safe to despatch it.  Whatever happens, we will endeavour to keep you informed and up to date.

We hope that the update will be of some interest, provide light relief from the news and help you to maintain and improve your collection from the safety of your own home.

Look after yourselves...

Best wishes

David & team
