Merchandise delays are subject to suppliers and Customs Import delays and sometimes can take 6-12  weeks, but this is a rare occasion, this also applies for oversized or bespoke orders.

To make the business more sustainable in the economic climate, all clothing will be made to order with a 12 week turnaround, we do keep a lot of stock, but we find that we always receive orders for items in a different style, colour & rank so please expect the clothing to be made and please be patient, we work hard to get items out to customers within the given timescales, on the very rare occasion we may overrun due delays from suppliers which are out of our control.  Rest assured we will fulfil every order.

We will in future only deliver to Mainland Spain and not the Canary Islands due to length of time for delivery.

Shoe/Boot Guarantee

We have a warranty on our shoes/boots, against manufacturing defect in material and workmanship for 6 months. Each case is dealt on its merits. Excessive ware or neglect voids any warranty, (so do not put your shoes next to the camp fire when your feet are cold and wet, or the leather will scorch and become brittle and fall apart)

Returns/Cancellations

We like to think that you will like our products and we always guarantee most items we sell, that if you are not totally satisfied, please contact us before returning items.  Items should be returned in an unused, unworn condition, unless manufacturing fault.  Returns accepted within 14 days of receipt.  The method of return is up to the customer and no reimbursement will be made for returns.  There will be a re-stocking fee of 10% for all returns.

No refunds are available on custom/Bespoke orders or outsized items, unless there is a manufacturing fault.

Cancellations need to be made within 3 days.  For Bespoke orders, once we are in the processes of making the item no cancellation can be made.  An order cannot be cancelled once shipped.

If payment received does not include enough for postage and packaging then the items will not be shipped until cleared payment has been received.

Clothing Sizing

We cannot be held responsible for orders of clothing which are dispatched in good faith for the size ordered, but are found not to be big enough, please ensure that you measure yourself before ordering, if you need to return an item for a replacement, then you will be requested to repay the shipping fees again before dispatch.

Tin Ware

Though tin ware has been tested for leaks, because of the nature of the construction we cannot be held responsible for leakage on these items, which you will need to be aware of at the time of purchase. Please do not put tin ware over a raging fire as the soldier will melt and leak. You must be aware that it is very hard to accept any tinware returned for refund, unless damaged in the post during delivery. Leakage in tinware would have been the same in 1860 as it is today as the same methods of construction are used.

Some tin ware has been coated in an edible oil which may contain nuts. Please clean thoroughly before use.
