The concept of Avast Militaria & Books was firmly established in 1985 when the store owners father brought him a lethal, razor sharp, Gurka Khukuri as a present for his 15th birthday. The seed was planted and his militaria collecting soon turned into hoarding. Fast forward almost 25 years later and we find that the store owners 'long haired Admiral' (wife) has now officially had enough of tripping over cannon balls and piles of old books.
This on-line shop is the product of one mans un-healthy obsession for all things military and nautical. "Every thing must go!"
Please enjoy, you really are very welcome!
