Today has been a day of adding new shapes and finishes to the website, most notably the Sir Douglas - a pipe shape that was originally made for legendary WWII flying ace Sir Douglas Bader. 

Sir Douglas flew as a fighter pilot for the RAF during the Second World War throughout the Battle for France & Battle for Britain campaigns. He was credited with shooting down over 22 German fighters and even endured being captured and held as a POW for some time. Sir Douglas lost both his legs during an aerobatic accident in 1931, making his accomplishments and notoriety even more impressive.

Sir Douglas was a loyal customer of Blakemar Briars for over a decade. His favoured shape was a small billiard with a short saddle stem. This same pipe that Sir Douglas liked to purchase & smoke is now being added to the Litchbruyere & De Luxe range. 

A great looking pipe with some interesting British history to it's name, this pipe is sure to be a good conversation piece, appealing to collectors and discerning pipe smokers all over. Click Here to view the Litchbruyere Sir Douglas pipe, or click here to view the De Luxe Sir Douglas pipe.

Below is letter we managed to find sent to R Martin from Sir Douglas in 1974 regarding his latest order.

It reads:

"Dear Mr Martin,

Many thanks for your excellent pipes which are just what I want.

Sorry for this delayed reply, but I was away in Scotland when your parcel arrived and I returned only yesterday.

Yours sincerely

Douglas Bader"

This weekend we've added a new section to the website - Smoking Accessories

These are items that have been available in our showroom in Litchborough for quite some time - now that our eCommerce site is up and running we decided to include them on here too!

The selection includes flints, pipe cleaners, hydration stones, 9mm filters, chalk filters, reamers and other pipe tools.

Unfortunately we are not able to include lighters, refill fluid or gas on our online store as we cannot ship them. These items are however available in our store - feel free to pop in and browse our selection / pick some up!

This week we've added a new tinned tobacco blend to our selection:


Dunhill My Mixture BB1938 (50g) Originally called "Baby's Bottom", now rebranded to BB1938. Generally a full bodied, smooth, rich and balanced smoke, full of nice tannins, with a clear smoky base due to the premium quality of Latakia tobacco in this fine mixture. Overall taste notes are woody, smoky, tannin and spicy.

This week we’ve added 2 new tinned tobacco blends to our selection.
These blends have been recently re-released by Dunhill, after being discontinued for quite some time:



Dunhill Durbar (50g)
Originally introduced in 1910 alongside Royal Yacht.
This blend is designed for the more experienced and mature pipe smoker, with a composition of Virginia, Latakia and Oriental tobaccos.
It has a well balanced smooth, dark brown smoke with floral and tannin tones.



Dunhill Apéritif (50g)
First introduced in 1951 alongside Early Morning Pipe.
This blend is also designed for the more experienced pipe smoker, with a composition of Virginia, Latakia, Oriental and Cavendish tobaccos.
It has a pronounced smoke, delivering a robust taste for smoking later in the day.


To see our full selection of stocked tinned tobacco products, head on over to the Tinned Tobacco page.

If loose tobacco is more your preference, you can see our full selection on the Loose Tobacco page.
