Hello Lloyd and Michelle, and welcome to the forum :)

Marmites here in the UK seem to be somewhat few and far between, and I have never seen one for sale here in the UK (only in France, I think). If anyone knows of a source though, I would be most interested, too.

Which Blanket Set are you looking for? The "Large" one (for 24 OD Blankets) or the "Small" version (which holds 8 OD Blankets).

Thanks, and welcome to the community again,
Ben

I'll have a look through my Blanket Bags, and see if there are any that I could let you have. I'm a bit short on the Small ones, but I'll let you know.

I'm afraid on the Marmites, I'm stumped!

Hi Lloyd,

I've had a look through, and can't really spare a Blanket Bag at the moment. I've got my feelers out though, and will let you know if anything turns up.

Cheers for sending over the images by the way. I have sent you a series of replies, look forward to hearing your thoughts :)

Ben

Hi Lloyd,

The seller of the Blanker Bag, and the various other medical items (check his other items) is indeed a frequent visitor and member of the forum. His alias on here is "Firetoad", and you can see some of his collection in the link below:

Todd's Collection

Just a word of warning though, I noted on the eBay listing he said:

Perhaps you've already sorted something out with Todd, but if not I thought I'd better point it out.

Thanks, and good luck with the auction,
Ben

Hi all, it is me on the Ebay listings. I have put up some items of my collection on Ebay to free up some cash to be down right honest with everyone. Three mouths to feed take precedence over an extensive WWII collection at this time.

Lloyd, I am easy enough to work with in my sales, so I am sure we can work something out. I put the no overseas shipping because my methods of shipping will not allow the weight I am pretty sure. I can do a little more research and see if it can be for sure or not. But, worst case, I can split the blanket set into two different shipments. Yes, the shipping bill will be high, but can't think of anything better at this moment. Best of luck!

Hey Todd

:D

Guess "Doofus" here should have read the whole ad first...Thanks so much for the forum reply.

Payment and 100% sale assured on these items Todd as i want to expand my partner Michelles WW2 ANC Field Nurses display.

I will bid higher as i want the bag and if the blankets are part of the sale so be it.

Appreciate you taking time to come back to me and yes buddy we CAN work something out.

Regards

Lloyd and Michelle
