This is a stand-to for an incoming competition, one of our most expensive yet.
Later this week we're going to be offering the opportunity to Win £270 Rab Neutrino Pro military down jacket
Visit the thread at that link above and Watch it to be notified as soon as the competition goes live
See if any of us "Septics" are nearby, you probably could make a trade for them, or some units have them to spare- they might just give it to you. theres also the PX - Cp. Liberty @BIAP has them dirt cheap, I used to see RAF types in there.
Got mine of e bay, cheshire fishing tackle, or the seller is royal postal, put out a searrch in militaria, they are an easy to find item, they also do the proper surefire batteries 12 for approx Â£15, anywhere else they are around a fiver each, hope its a help
quick related question to the Surefire thing; I have had a surefire for a while and so far very reliable, but with new batteries in, it suddenly stopped working, so i guess the bulb has gone and needs replacing... as i bought it at a yank PX many moons ago, where is a supplier/ retailer in the UK where i can get a replacement bulb for it?
