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.
