Pre-Christmas Update News

Saturday 27th November 2021 at 20:20

Hello everyone,

It's that time of year again...  On Tuesday 30th November we will release our latest stock update for the website.  The time has been set for 8.00pm/20.00hrs (GMT) and we expect it to take between 30 and 45 minutes to complete.  Over 100  new items will be added and as always you can expect to see a wide variety of flying clothing, uniform items, paperwork, survival kit, equipment, station items and insignia plus a few 'Home Front' items left over from our old 'Black-Out' business.  Prices start at just a few pounds to well into the thousands to cater for all budgets.  If viewing live please remember to refresh your browser frequently to see the new stock as it is added.  Everything is available on a first come first served basis but remember that an item is not 'bagged' until you complete checkout.  Remember, you don't need to be registered to checkout and can do this 'as a guest'.  If you order multiple items, any excess postage paid will be refunded once the orders have been packed. Sorry, strictly no previews so please don't ask!

Payment can be made online through our automated checkout using Stripe or Paypal (no accounts needed).  Select 'offline' payment to settle your bill using a bank transfer, cheque or credit/debit card payments via 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 Wednesday morning. If paying 'offline' please email and let us know.

Sadly we are still not routinely shipping to mainland Europe (EU) due to the significant  delays and losses encountered since 'Brexit'.  We are happy to review this on an individual basis and will ship subject to certain conditions. Customers affected by this are advised to contact us to discuss potential purchases before ordering goods.  Apologies for the inconvenience caused.

Now is the time to alert your family to the coming update and hopefully ensure that you get what you really want in your Christmas stocking! Alternatively, just treat yourself to something at the end of yet another challenging year.

What's on your 'Christmas Wish List'?  Did you know that it's possible to save items of interest to review at a later date?  When you've created a list, you can email it, print it, or send an enquiry about all items in the list.  To add items to this list, view an item on the website and simply click on the 'Add to wish list' button.  Ideal for dropping those 'not so subtle' hints!

Following on from the update we will be loading our ever popular Advent Calendar to the website so that you can enjoy 'unwrapping' a mystery item each day until the 24th December. So that's another 24 new items in December to look forward to! 

Get ready to stock up on essentials, fill those cupboards and hoard some history...

Best wishes

David & team

PS No new orders received will be despatched until after the update.  Thanks for your patience.
