The Ministry of Defence (MoD) launched its Del Boy auction website on Sunday, offering everything from a fully-armoured Land Rover Discovery (£9,500) to a complete RAF uniform or a Gordon Highlanders kilt.

The site has been flogging off old Army gear for a while, but the auction section should really liven things up. Items currently being offered include a Green Goddess fire engine, for which bidding stands at £1,000, or a rather splendid red Guards uniform, which could be yours for just £30.

The site is also offering a Yellow Goddess - a rare, riot-ready Green Goddess which saw action in Northern Ireland.

Other tempting sections range from aircraft, ships, and vehicles, to the rather more mundane IT and telecoms.

The medical and dental section offers crutches from £7.50 and a "fully loaded" dental kit from the Royal Navy from £120.

Other weird offers include decanters and an organ - a Johannus Opus 5 if you were wondering. No weapons or ammo are available on the site.

Go here to waste a lot of time pick up a bargain.

The Disposals Sales Agency, part of the MoD, has raised over £700m flogging off surplus kit since the early 1990s. ®
