I know who he is.
I don't think he's too popular with Burridges because of his business name.

From their website

IMPORTANT NOTICE ;
WE REGRET THE NECESSITY TO INFORM OUR MANY CUSTOMERS THAT WE ARE IN NO WAY AFFILIATED WITH JBMILITARIA OR JB MILITARY ANTIQUES ALSO OF PERTH. IT IS UNFORTUNATE THAT HAVING TRADED IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA FOR OVER 40 YEARS WE NOW FIND THE NEED TO POST THIS ADVICE.
Then again wasn't it Charles Caleb Colton who said

Have a google about JB Militaria and you will find some interesting reading. Lol

I just hope the auction winner isn’t a forum member.

Someone just paid $354.99 for a bad fake and probably will have a hard time returning it.

The seller has this in his listing.

"Have had some wide and varied opinions on this from a number of dealers & collectors, so selling this as is, with no warranty associated/returns."

And he is well known for his temper tantrums and unprofessional behavior when it comes to people returning fake items to him.

Caveat Emptor.

Some of the things he has done to other customers is beyond belief! Lots of threads on Facebook about him so I want mention it here.

Mick

He blocked me from his FB page as I asked him if he was John Burridge

I spoke to him on the phone years ago because we had had a disagreement. He threatened me and I told him if we met he should make sure he some friends around because he'd need them. A complete wanker!
