Anyone know where I might get a few of these in the UK?

The only place I can find them is survival resources but its pretty expensive buying for the US and shipping them over

I don't know what size you're looking for, but I have bought from this seller before, and it's always been good stuff.
I'm pretty sure he has stock that isn't up on his eBay shop, so if what you're looking for isn't presently for sale, it might be well worth messaging him.
I've bought everything from lab bottles to test tubes, these little ones I use for spices in my camp kit...though the ones I got from him had screw on caps.

If you can improvise your own lids I’d be happy to give you some polycarbonate “test tubes”. They are labelled Jagermeister though!

Nothing against Jägermeister!
It's healthy, means in English translation hunting master.
And - of course - because it's German it's good.

I know where you can get smaller & I do mean a lot smaller 1's. I'll have a look in my cabinet and get back to you. in the mean time search for Hidden s.e.r.e Vials / Capsule's.

Those Survival Resources ones are about 85mm long but only 6mm internal diameter - if you can use something wider bore there are scores of suppliers on amazon selling plastic test tubes and plastic vials for pence (£7.99 for 50 for example).

What about the Pump/Press down type Soap dispensers as they have a firmer straw in them which is about the size of a straw.
I've used them for all sort's.

Had another thought lastnight ''it does happen sometimes'' Try using the Nozzle / spray Tube from Expandy Foam or similar product's it's a expensive option but the size would be better and ask around people keep spares.

Could also get some Heat Shrink from an Electrical supplier - silicone or glue the ends and just heat shrink ( if applicable ) around whatever it is .
