    Well, I did rather have leads to follow to find them :)

    If you haven't tried their soap, it comes highly recommended too.

    We don’t get too many midges here in the south, but there’s a camping spot we visit several times each year on the banks of the River Arun where there are a couple of hours of midge attack early evening. The small tins of Stupidly Simple have been passed around for the last couple of years or so, everyone reckons it’s good stuff.

    on the blogspot it says to contact before buying so that postage costs might be reduced on more than one item? I'd like to purchase a pine tar soap and a large tin of the midge repellant please? (the Google account i signed in with on the blogspot is the Caroline Smyth one) please advise... thanks :)

    Thanks for the prompt delivery of the tin of judge repellent. It's now tucked into my anti insect kit which loves in one of Bilmo's excellent little nylon bags. Wonderful what you can get on BushcraftUK!
