SAS and ebay

#1
seems while looking around ebay there is a shed loads of stuff with "Sas" attached to it sas selection certificate, sas parachute, "Rare" sas stable belts etc
i think the name sas = army surplus items associations is getting a bit worn out.

the real SAS that i have seen tend to be very normal and unassuming , no Rambo tendencies whatsoever , which the walters seem to do to an excess even to the point of wearing the kit/badges in public :roll: i bet the IRA are p1ssing themselves laughing at them

Sellers do this to attract more attention to their items. The search engine matches what the buyer has typed in to the title of the listed item. Result is buyers adding 'army SAS marines para TA cadets' to their listing titles to get more hits. Technically it's not allowed under eBay rules but it works. I've also seen 'combat 95 as worn by SAS' in one listing. It's not long before we have 'stick as stepped on by SAS'.

Are you sure that's yours to sell, F_S?

Best one I ever saw was an old issue PLCE Bergan Olive Green, with AS USE BY UK SPECIAL FORCES - and it was "won" for over £80.00 and sold to the USA.

something odd about that one in florida. Gives location as

"Item location: Florida, USA
United Kingdom"

and does his listing on eBay UK, not from eBay us


Also claims the empossed seals on his certificates are "authentic"

and "The commanding officers name of that date will be applied on the bottom."

some sort of AGC scam?

This certificate is ideal for those who may have lost original.
What a complete chopper.

Feck me – One trip on

SAS Scandanavian Airlines

And I will have enough SAS peanuts, SAS sleeping masks, SAS plastic coffee cups and SAS strangely rotund wind-up models of Jumbo Jets to make a killing on EBay

I will even sell someone my SAS boarding pass with my name crossed out and replaced with the ‘winners’ name in authentic SAS crayon.

My next 'here’s a gullible tw@t' scheme is to half inch a couple of pint pots from a boozer in Hereford and flog them off on Ebay as ’Genuine Hereford Beer glasses as used by the SAS...probably.... maybe...could have’

Bargain at £20 each

Since the inception of E-Bay the word buckshee has diminished somewhat. It's not buckshee any more it's on bloody e-bay. Next time any of your kit goes missing do a quick search on e-bay you might just find it :roll: Time to have an attic clearout "genuine SAS bootzips" last worn in bagdad! :twisted:

There was a time when members of a certain London based 'Artistic' TA unit all used to carry those gopping plastic shoulder bags (when they were fashionable) from Scandanavian Airlines. Perhaps they still do? Maybe someone could update me...
