    Did wonder if it would arrive OK.
    I bought a Territorial Army one as I was in it myself years ago.
    I helped win the Cold War . :p

    Owen, I know you sent one card during your tour of the USA in 2016 that never arrived, so I always expect items to get lost, even ones sent from within the US. I suspect the garbage postal service in Chicago had something to do with this.

    I've had items arrive from the UK in a few days to a couple months. Once a piece of art I had ordered took 51 days to be delivered. I had completely given up hope that it would arrive, but arrive it eventually did, complete with the postmark evidence of the tardiness.

    Once it move out of the current apartment and into the new Texas home I'll share images of the art, as it is currently packed away. It's some original art from Commando!, and I can't wait to put it back up on the wall.

    I've had similar experiences with items from the UK. I've been waiting for a WW2 book from England to be delivered to my US address for a month and a half now. I don't know if it's an issue with Royal Mail or the USPS. I'd guess the issue is on the US side, and likely attributed to US Customs.
