    hi all borrowed a crappy compact camera was just curious if anyone knows what material turns white when its exposed to seawater for a long time? it isin't asbestos is it? cos I keep finding interesting relics but theyre flaky and turned a whitish colour with patches of blue bits. The pic of that piece is what I found beside where I found the ww2 wellington bomber airframe piece. Attachment 359775

    Asbestos is relatively easy to spot as it it almost always in 'fibre' form, even when compressed. Check the edges of the piece and where the cracks/splits are. If it is asbestos or an asbestos compound you will see tiny fibres sticking out of the edge. If it's got fibres, pound to a bent ha'penny it's asbestos.

    Hope that helps.

    Asbestos....is nasty but while it is wet or damp..least so.
    When its dry and fibers float about....much more so!

    well I got rid of it lol, went to an old ww2 airfield today and my friend found stuff I missed out! he found a hole in the ground and a ladder that leads to an underground bunker complex underneath the runway O_O! will need go back and film this, I dunno how he finds the stuff I missed out, hes like "stop the car" looking through binos and looks at the distance in trees, says to me "those are old mod fences" we have a look in the forest near it outside the base and found a ww2 dump
