It's the 13 quid "handling charge" from PF that hacks me off. I'm trying to get a concrete answer from HMR&C on whether they are willing to hold items until the VAT & duty is paid by the owner, instead of letting PF feck us for another 13 quid....

For just a bit more you can get a good repro - have you read Gadges' guide to Brit kit on the cheap?

Not being an expert on Brit kit (I wear my US M43 trousers with my Denison!) I'll let others answer....

Yeah it is crap. This is why if you order anything from HK it can be a better idea to state "Please dont post via EMS" (which is the local postal service which then gets translated to Arsehole Force when it arrives on our shores). It will then be sent via UPS/TNT/etc who usually have a vastly lower fee (and also usually ask for it on the door rather than holding it).

The downside with this is that UPS deliveries always get taxed. If it goes via EMS theres a chance it will slip under the net. Swings and round-abouts. If its a big order its probably worth UPSing it as its more likely to get taxed anyway.
