Default D.P. & G. Military Publishing UK

Recently I have been trying to locate D.P. & G. Military Publishing UK on line. Do they still exist, or have they changed their web site. Information would be greatly
appreciated.
Regards,
Michael

I believe the owner is recently deceased, the publisher closed down and remaining items were auctioned off. Some have appeared on ebay recently, York Military Bookstore I think was selling items very recently.

Quite a shame, I have a number of their technical reprints, Treatise on Military Carriages and Textbook on Ordnance, etc.

Numerous lots were in an auction in February.

Very sorry to hear that. Bryan Martin published all three of my books on Shako Plates and Glengarry badges when no one else was prepared to do so. He also had a vast range of military publications and rare reprints now sadly unavailable. A great pity he was not fully appreciated at the time. RIP Bryan
