The Army and Navy Co-operative Society Ltd was formed in 1871 by a group of army and navy officers. It was their intention to supply “articles of domestic consumption and general use to its members at the lowest numerative rates”. The first store opened on 15 Feb 1872 at Victoria Street, London. At the end of 1873 a gun department was established. By the end of the century the Society was issuing an enormous annual illustrated price list, had introduced telephone ordering and mail order.
