Default What happened to MBL/Military Badges Ltd?

Does anyone know what happened to MBL or Military Badges Ltd? The business sold new UK military badges and other items up to 4 or so years ago.

They sold though eBay as 'MBL' and 'uk-military-badges', and later as 'militarykitshop'. They also had their own website 'www.military-badges.co.uk' which is now defunct.

I bought quite a few items from MBL over the years, and I was always sure of the quality and provenance. I'm restarting my collecting and wondered where MBL had gone.

It was based in Warrington in Cheshire, and, I think, run by a chap named Steve Bewley.

Does anyone know if MBL or Steve still trade on eBay or elsewhere under a different business ID?

Thanks

Steve still trades on Ebay,don't know whether he has a website or not.
Berets-badges is one of the two IDs he uses . Not sure of the other.I've had a fair bit of stuff from him over the last 6 months or so. All genuine items.
