1940s CIVILIAN & MILITARY CLOTHING


WHERE TO BUY STUFF


We are frequently asked where we buy our clothing, uniforms and equipment from. 

Some people even email us and ask can they borrow uniforms and equipment from us. The answer is always a polite refusal: what we have is often very valuable and we do not hire out anything to people who we do not know.  Members have lent things to other people in the past, only to have items returned damaged - or worse - not at all.  PLEASE DO NOT ASK US TO LEND YOU UNIFORMS AND EQUIPMENT unless you are a guest at one of our events.

We buy our clothing and equipment from local militaria fairs where sellers gather to sell items to the public.  See a list of some below.

Militaria sellers attend some of the larger re-enactment events around the country, such as War & Peace Show and Detling in Kent, Foxfield Railway in Staffordshire, East Lancs Railway in Lancashire, etc.  People who sell 1940's period civilian clothing and items can also be found here.

There are also a number of these militaria sellers who now have websites.  Below is a list of some from whom our members have purchased items.   

 

Another good place to look for items is on the internet auction site eBay - although you should be very careful not to pay too high a price for some things!   Visit the eBay.co.uk website

         
Militaria and period suppliers (in the UK):
 

 

PLATOON, Bury

Platoon stock a variety of WW2 uniforms and kit, including 1949 pattern British BDs and the Swedish uniforms which we convert to German. They also have a large stock of equipment and other items which you may be seeking.

Visit the Platoon website

THE HISTORIC FLYING CLOTHING COMPANY

Probably comparatively expensive, this company only deals in originals - not replicas.  So if there is something you really want that you cannot get elsewhere, this would be a recommended place to look for everything relating to Allied and Axis flying clothing and equipment.

SOLDIER OF FORTUNE, Mid-Wales

SOF offer an outstanding range of WW2 replica uniforms and equipment which you cannot find easily anywhere else.  You will often find them at the large militaria fairs such as Stoneleigh, and they also have a huge stall at the War & Peace Show, Stoneleigh Militaria Fair, The Victory Show and Pickering Showground each year.
