PostSubject: Modern Decent Boot Brushes   10/3/2010, 19:26

I still have all but one of my Army issue brush set from 1963.

My family often comment. "Dad, where can I buy shoe brushes like your?"

I have surfed the usual sources including ebay. Does anyone have any ideas where I can buy ex military decent quality brush set?

I still have mine in the shed from 1952 with my last four numbers stamped on the side! What would they be worth on E-Bay?

You could try New Cross Supplies, 34 Tib Street, Manchester. Te. 0161 832 9683
I've used them in the past, but don't know if they stock brushes.
