In 1998 Mark Brown set up his own business selling Army Surplus and Shooting Supplies on his local markets in Lincolnshire. He soon realised the surplus and general outdoor clothing were very popular and there began Military and Outdoor.

Aiming to sell quality products at low prices with excellent customer service was his goal and it's one we work to, to this day.

We have not sold on the markets since Spring 2015

The website was launched in 2006 and we have been posting things out to customers for internet and telephone orders ever since,

 Since 2010 Military and Outdoor has traded at some of the largest airshows in the country (and some of the smallest) including RIAT, Waddington, Duxford IWM, Cosford, Dunsfold, East Kirkby and Shuttleworth

 We are still a tight knit family business which allows us to keep costs to a minimum ensuring low prices without compromising on quality or service.

Our Team


Mark Brown


Mark originally managed the Louth Gun shop before starting the company in 1998. Marks area of expertise is primarily sales, buying, new lines and Accounts. He is at all the shows ('cause Amy's too short to put the sheet on)

Likes to think he looks like Daniel Craig (deluded)


Amy Brown


Amy joined the company full time in 2011 after qualifying for a fashion degree and working as a pattern cutter for both bridal and sportswear companies. Amy works on the website - internet and mail order sales and social media sides of the company. Likes to think she looks like Lara Croft (equally deluded)


Mick Brown

Boston Stall / general

Marks Dad used to run the stall at Boston Market. Primarily a farmer Mick does some part time work including the packing parcels at Christmas and helping out at local shows. His wife Shirley is very good at providing refreshments during manically busy periods and as a former seamstress helps out with unpicking and repairs.


Joined the team in 2012 as Rodent control and prevention director.

Came to us as a wild stray with no sense of balance and hid whenever she saw us - but in time she has come to love fuss and likes to climb on Amy and Marks shoulders like a parrot.

Likes to think she's a panther (also deluded)

 So that's us - if you have any questions please do contact us either by email on

or by phone  01507534947

if you need to contact Mick (or Whiskers) just contact us and we'll pass the message on. Thanks
