    Hello Bob, the pieces you have are definately aircraft, just not a Spitfire rudder pedal (photos of the two types used attached), it's probably some form of electrical insulator. Typhoon pedals are made from alumininium sheet, Hurricane are very simple cast aluminium affairs. I've got access to a database of most UK RAF crashes by county so could possibly help. It is very unlikely you have found an 'unknown' site but it is always useful to pin them down to an actual event and person. Any mor photos of items found (pre 1986!) would be very interesting.

    If you post the part numbers that are stamped on any of the parts I should be able to track down the aircraft type. Spitfire airframe parts all start at 300 with the next numbers identifying the part of the airframe. For example 331 01 is spitfire Vb Top centre main planes. Each component if British will have a circular air ministry inspection stamp for example "VACB"- Vickers Armstrong Castle Bromwich"
