You will probably be wondering why the 90 pence came back - My wife and I believe strongly in supporting things that need supporting, and our servicemen come well into that category so I asked her (she is processing orders as I am away looking for new product for our web-shop) to round down the pence on the order with the BFPO address.
Our armed forces are very much "unsung" in UK, and you guys either have served in "trouble-spots", are doing so, or will probably do so. At the moment we don't take alot of mark-up as the shipping costs take most ofour "distributor discount", but we feel that we should at least show some sort of respect and appreciation.
I was in Saudi when "Kuwait" happened, and felt a lot safer knowing the British Military was heading out (worried that the Yanks were coming as well though!!!) and my "regular business" was dead in the run-up to Gulf One and I found myself running convoys of just about anything that "4&7" needed up toJubail (stuff that was "not important enough to ship out by air" and that I could find locally in Saudi. During that time I built up some friends there in Camp Jubail.
BzconSalt Inc over in Seattle send complimentary bottles to the US military (ANYTHING has to help MREs!), funded by their tee-shirts etc's profits, but we're not making a profit yet but we'll keep an eye out for BFPO addresses and try to knock at least 10% off from orders.
BTW - did you hear about us from the post on aarse a few days ago? I suspect a coincidence as I regularly search for sites where we are mentioned especially after we had a burst of hits on our website and then I saw the post by "Flight", and at about that time. (though not a lot oforders!)
Must go asI'm still away from home and Wife's name is on the phone.
Thanks again for the order, and all our best wishes and prayers for you.
