Around 1964 Tradition of London began publishing an awe-inspiring, prestigious magazine on military attires, which was named Tradition and following the success of the magazine, the model Action Figures and the shop were similarly named. Many leading military authors and artists, past and present, were at the time contributors to Tradition magazines, which ceased publication in 1974.Fortunately, a number of past issues of the magazine are still available. Each issue contains many articles on military uniforms and related subjects, fully illustrated in black and white color. Action Figures from the shop serve as a wonderful memorabilia too. Tradition of London offers a worldwide mail order service of Action Figures from the shop at 5A Shepherd Street.
