Military and police surplus are items that are sold or otherwise disposed of when no longer needed by the military or civilian police forces. When a military force or police constabulary upgrades gear or the supplying government’s contract for too many items from manufacturers, these items are often decommissioned and sold as remainders to companies and civilians to offset the costs related. We are constantly on the lookout for unique military and police surplus from not only the US, but many countries. The varied history and inventive, durable designs seen in surplus can be a real boon to collectors, survivalists, campers, teachers, and reenactors.
Businesses often purchase these items and resell them. Usually, the items sold by the military are clothing, bags, equipment, and tools which civilians find useful, easy to use and durable and at great savings. Individual uniform items can make for a complete faux military uniform. Occasionally, vehicles will be sold as well like Jeeps, Humvees, trucks, planes, helicopters, and even ships. Demand for these items comes from various collectors, survivalists, and players of airsoft and paintball.
The history of military surplus in the US dates back to the Civil War; it was the first war that had proper uniforms issued for many troops. Before this, troops were basically wearing whatever they had with them or could pillage from the battlefield. As demand grew, both sides mass-produced arms and wears. After the war ended, they sold the supplies in stores to recover some of the costs. The military surplus store was thus born. The police and military surplus in this section are genuine and in good condition. You’ll find items from WWII to present day. The Cold War era yielded many fine examples. You never know what you’ll find here. We’ve had everything from riot helmets, munitions and shovels to canvas pup tents and safety glasses.
Whether it is the famous three lions of King Richard or the Stars and Stripes, historical flags have represented honor and show allegiance and pride. Flags, banners, standards, call them what you will, they represent countries, militaries, identify territories, honor royalty, and can act as warnings. However, there are some that were infamous as well. Pirates and Privateers of all sorts made flags to instill fear, the most famous being the skull and crossbones.
In antiquity, standards were used in warfare to identify the various factions fighting and reigned over a victorious battlefield. Examples include the eagle carried by the Roman aquilifer, or the dragon standard of the Sarmatians. The latter would fly freely in the wind, carried by a horseman, similar to a kite. Beginning in the Middle Ages and later, flags were used primarily as a symbol of identity in battle, which made it easier to identify a knight than only from the heraldic symbol painted on the shield or tunic. The increasing use of flags during the high medieval period was gradually adopted by city states. During the Age of Sail, especially in the early 17th century, it was common (later a legal obligation) for ships to bear flags designating their nationality; these flags would eventually evolve into present-day national flags. Flags also became the preferred means to convey messages at sea.
Use of flags outside of military or naval context begins only with the rise of nationalism at the end of the 18th century; the earliest have been dated to that period, and during the 19th century it became common for every sovereign state to have a national flag. We feature many iconic pirate flags, US flags and US Civil War flags, plus many historical flags from various countries that are suitable for indoor or outdoor use. All of these are great for display, teaching, home use, or reenacting.
