I gave most of my ex-military gear away when I left the TA in 1999, but kept a few things, just in case. This year I've had to re-kit both myself and my boy, and have found ebay and amazon a great place to pick up bargains. Here's what I've discovered; Hultafors knives (I have Hultafors GK, OK1 and the Classic Hunting Axe) Lixada folding wood stoves and Trangia clone alcohol burners. Vango folding gas burner - uses the ubiquitous gas canister Tenth Wonder Hammocks and Tarps - Not the cheapest but definitely very good quality with great features more military surplus - UK issue kit is SO much better these days. The new PCS clothing is pretty cheap and the cold weather gear looks much better than we had back in't day. Eko bio ethanol - cheaper, cleaner, and hotter than meths, with much less smell.
