Camping in the Lake District. Any militaria in the area?

Article about: I won't be around for a few days as I am going on a camping trip to the Lakes. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any militaria dealers around there? We will be around Ambleside for most of it

    I won't be around for a few days as I am going on a camping trip to the Lakes. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any militaria dealers around there? We will be around Ambleside for most of it.

    Malcolm Bowers of M&T Militaria is in Carlisle which is about an hour drive from Ambleside. If you want to visit I suggest you give him a call to make sure he's open.

    You can see his website here: M&T Militaria.

    Pay a visit to Grizedale Forest and the site of the old hall as well. It used to be a POW camp in the last war where Franz von Werra escaped from.

    Thanks chaps. Harry I had not heard of Franz von Werra before, I just read about his exploits briefly on the net. What a story! I must catch the film. I was saddened to hear he ended up in the sea off Holland though after all that.
