    Default London Militaria shops?

    Does anyone know of any decent militaria shops in London? Ideally near a tube station! Fancy a tat-spending spree, namely a good decent pith helmet but not sure which sort to go for (either the Wolseley or the other sort as used in Zulu). Only one i've seen so far is one in Camden Market which was actually well priced, but didn't have one there unfortunately or much else in the way of WW2 stuff.

    Cheers, Rob

    Problem is you are paying London prices. IE what ever we can screw out of rich idiots.

    Yeah, i'm looking for the ones you see at just about every militaria show/stalls at vehicle shows, normally go for about 10-20. Hoping to try one on first though as i'm not sure which i'd prefer! Thanks for the hints though guys will give them a go

    Try Nick Hall at Sabre Sales in Southsea, Hampshire (I know it's not London, but it's not too far). He tends to stock loads of obscure items, including what you are looking for. Best to go there, as his shop in quite extensive and you can spend hours looking round.

    I agree with Robert, you won't be disappointed. I was there a couple of weeks ago. There are 2 adjacent shops & another a few doors down. Not only are there upstairs, back rooms & annexes, there is a double cellar with stock up to your shoulder. In fact you have to crawl on your stomach to move around as you can't stand up. I found NOS WW2 mule saddlery of various sorts, even respirator bags for horses!

    Given the slump in commercial property prices in the area I think he will be relieved to carry on for at least a while.

    Try Laurence Corner, in Hampstead Rd. near to Euston Square Tube Station. I have not been in there for years, but it was once an aladins cave of obsure military surplus. Check out their website, pith helmets mentioned, www.laurencecorner.co.uk
