    Wouldn't think it a port cover......not made of iron/steel. Would be aluminium alloy if it was.

    Maybe a bit off a pot belly stove ?

    Hi Steve,

    it was found in a wood where there is not much litter. Just german and british spent cases, badges (very few left) and ordnance and armour parts. I found a Bren mag not far from it.

    Aaahhh sorry....my mistake. Assumed you were on airfields like me

    Could it be off an American grease gun ?

    Hi Steve,
    unfortunately airfields are off limits here. I prefer to hunt old and dismissed shooting ranges or battle/training fields.

    Hi Matt, it is the lid/cover from an MG34 ammo drum.

    I have borrowed this pic of a Yugo made copy to illustrate the point. Yours of course is wartime German.

    Cheers, Ade.

    thank you Ade, you spotted it well!
    I do have 2 relic MG drums here, one found not too far from the place where I found this part but it didn't come to my mind

    Once again, post up a pic of something covered in 60years of rust, with no markings or paint of any kind and Ade will identify it.

    Truly remarkable knowledge you have Ade !
