    I'm afraid most Militaria and Medal dealers have picked up on the popularity of WW2 Polish Exile items, including medals.
    There are good deals to be had, but mostly through trading like items.

    You might do better through this forum, as there are a few 2nd Corps. specialists here.

    Cheers

    Hi
    Truly – there is nothing actually – i am very frustrated too
    - The Angel Arcades Military Market closed down c4-5 years ago
    - High end - Portobello Road – I have never bought anything interesting there
    - Other “low-end” markets (Greenwich, City, C-Garden) – I have never bought anything interesting there
    - There are a few shops (dealers) in Cecil Court / King Str Chelsea etc – but they would rather buy from you than sell (partly as they collect themselves and / or have waiting lists on items)
    - Regional Military Markets (outside of London) are slightly better – but generally if You do not have a car to drive there – really there is no point to go there – invest 1 day and sonly see a few patches / guant pilot’s badges and 3DSK and 5KDP badges

    I am almost thinking about trying to find out if it is possible to start up a Military Market (1 time a month) in the basement Club of a Polish Church in Angel.
    I believe there will be a big interests from dealers and collectors not only of the Polish Badges and the Church will make come cash (entry fee – let’s say 3£ + bar)
    Location is excellent and very accessible

    That's a great idea and you r right the location is great. I don't think the priest would mind as the priests there are quite friendly.
    And thanks for the info wadowicznic!
