I vaguely remember something which claimed to be army surplus. Otherwise there was Z&I Aero Services who had a load of Russian valves.

Edgeware road had a few more useful shops but serious stuff meant a trip either to Manor Supplies or Cricklewood Broadway.
Z&I Aero Services also had a shop/offices in Westbourne Grove (Bayswater) in the 1970s, close to where I worked for Chubbs.
