Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

com­men­tary Es­corted by a friendly, ex­pe­ri­enced cruise manager Eight nights’ full board ac­com­mo­da­tion on board Coach travel from the lo­cal area and Chan­nel cross­ings FOR­MER army cadet Luke Eus­tace is open­ing a shop to ‘give some­thing back’ to the mil­i­tary.

The 26-year-old from Hilling­don, is leav­ing his day job as an area sales manager to open a spe­cial­ist equip­ment store for army re­servists and reg­u­lars. Uni­form Bravo Sur­plus will open at 5 White­leys Pa­rade, Uxbridge Road, Uxbridge on June 1.

Mr Eus­tace, who was a cadet for seven years, said: “There’s a big short­age of equip­ment, from body ar­mour to com­passes. There needs to be some­one who can pro­vide ser­vice per­son­nel with all this.”

His busi­ness will reach out to the Bri­tish Le­gion and RAF Northolt and re­spond to na­tional and in­ter­na­tional cam­paigns.

Mr Eus­tace and his part­ner have am­bi­tious plans for 15 branches na­tion­ally in the next 10 years. They will also sell prod­ucts for ad­ven­tur­ous ac­tiv­i­ties such as paint­ball and air­soft.

Cadets reg­u­lars and re­servists will get a 10% dis­count.
