Just curious.
Why have a separate thread when we have a whole LINKS section?
You can add your links and there are many useful links already there.

Because if they are in the BI & ROI section it makes it easier for us to find links and addresses that may be more relevant to us or easier for us to use from over here.

But this thread will eventually fade into the background if not regularly posted to.
So if you want to keep it in view indefinitely, you may want to put your most popular links in the link section also.
Just a suggestion so the information is not lost in the clutter at some point in the future. Seems like valuable info.

Hi Maurepas, any chance you can make this a sticky i think a UK thread to links will be valuable to us all, this side of the water.

As Rosesandtea said the UK links are more relevant to us, we tend to have a hard time just looking for suppliers of bulk foods and or other items, for example I am forced to order from the United States and pay as much for carriage as I did for the item ordered, try looking for a UK supplier for a canner and your see why this is best placed in UK section, of this board.

BTW anyone know where to buy a canner in UK, been loooking a week now and not really wanting to buy from U.S, as i also have two parcels coming from states that i can not seem to track.

Also i need link to a bulk food supply, salt, wheat, flour, rice, potato flakes, powder egg/milk.

Nemie, I could not find a pressure canner anywhere here. However, you can use a big stock pot as a water bath canner - try to find a rack that will fit in the bottom to let water be under the jars.

You can water bath can high-acid items like most fruits, and tomatoes as long as they are not over-ripe.

I found a decent supplier for a pressure canner on Ebay, postage was high but not as high as other sellers and his auction had a "make an offer" thing which meant I got the item lower than what I was usually seeing. If you want his name, plmk.

There have been a few links to bulk food suppliers (usually health foods) do have a look at those if you haven't already.

A company that sells food storage buckets from very small to 30 litre. I have not bought from them yet so I can't vouch for them.
I can vouch for them, have used them twice with no problems.

Can be a bit of a pain logging into the site though.

I tend to stock up on these, you don't need electrics to use them and their very strong, just have a good brand ratchet and socket to fit the head, good SHTF screws/bolts.

I tend to buy these in pack of 100

http://www.screwfix.com/prods/46700/...mm-Pack-of-100

And these in pack of 50

Default Outbound First Aid

Today I received an order that I placed yesterday from Ebay. I ordered 5 foil blankets along with some other things. The package contained 6 blankets - one was a gift, and they sent me a voucher code to be used on a future order.

I'm pleased with the things I got and appreciated the extra blanket and voucher.

www.Outboundfirstaid.com

or www.climbhikecamp.com

on Ebay they seem to be Outbound first aid.

Regarding military surplus and survival/Camping gear, there are tons of mail order companies, several of which I've used. But I like to have a browse in person, however military surplus stores in my part of London/surrey are few and far between. Yet there is a very good one in Surbiton (near kingston): called 'Ranger'

Here's the website: http://www.ranger.uk.com/index.php

They stock most of the top brands and if they don't have a product, they can often order it in for you.

I've bought a lot of products from them since first finding the shop a few months ago and can only say good things about them. As with most military surplus stores, it's not a huge place but it is very well stocked.

It's literally a one minute walk once you exit Surbiton station and turn right. they also do a lot of mail order products for those of you who don't live nearby.

A good company if you are looking for axes, knives, utility blades, hunting knives, multi-purpose blades for survival, clearing undergrowth, hacking branches etc, Cold Steel are one of the best out there in my opinion.

They test their kinves and other equipment to the limit and film it to demonstrate the quality of the products. All the blades, axes etc you find here are tough and unlikely to break when you need them most. They have videos online of some of their stuff in action.

Here's the UK distributor

http://www.coldsteel-uk.com/

EDIT: I ordered Cold Steel's True Flight Thrower Knife and it came, as promised, in 2 days, well packaged and in perfect condition. Highly recommended company.

I think I may have mentioned Brow Farm before- www.browfarm.co.uk

I ordered a handmill late last week - it came today (haven't tried it yet) and they threw in 5kgs of wheat as well, which I did not expect!

I've always had good service with them and was pleased at the extra I got today.
