This is the latest information regarding the website stock update taking place today. We will be adding approximately 185 new items this evening, Friday, 27th March 2020 from 20.00hrs (8pm GMT). We have a good range of clothing, kit, equipment and documents including a few items from a huge collection of USAAF 8th/9th AF paperwork purchased earlier in the year. Also expect flying helmets, goggles, jackets, insignia, parachute gear and RAF station equipment. Prices start at around £6 rising to about £2000. We expect the update to take around 90 minutes to complete but please be aware that the internet is unpredictable at the moment with many more people on line. Please be patient, we'll be going as quickly as possible!
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.
Payment can be made online through our automated checkout using PayPal (no account needed) or select 'offline' payment to settle your bill using a bank transfer, cheque or credit/debit card payment over the telephone. If you do want to pay over the phone please avoid ringing whilst the update is in progress as we'll be too busy to respond. Ideally give us a call on Saturday morning.
To date 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 latest Covid-19 news and help you to maintain and improve your collection from the safety of your own home.
Look after yourselves...
David & team
