    I also have some parts probably from the same aircraft, I had assumed they were Tornado but they could well be Jaguar. I'll have to check for numbers.
    have you posted any photos of your finds anywhere? Id love to see some, of all the types you have found, ww2 and post war etc

    If it is XX137 theres a pic of its remains in a sussex scrapyard apparently

    Here you go, the torch is a standard RAF safety torch, there's no batteries in it as the Aircraft land away tool kits were stowed in the aircraft and you don't want live batteries installed in stowed equipment.

    The other parts are stainless so I think must be from the engine shield area and the pipe fitting could be bleed air as its heavy duty and looks to have been in a fire (Along with one of the panels) as it has burnt through.

    Does anyone recognise the part numbers?

    There will be loads of stuff around the Lossie area...plenty of aircraft have gone in over the years.......there is even stuff lost from exercises from WW2.....supposed to be a couple of tanks that can be seen at low tide ...i wish i could remember where.....the best i can drag out of my faded memory is between Lossie going towards Burghead...i shall try and ask my father in law next time i see him.......

    Plenty of areas around Spey bay that still have the old taxi ways present...and dispersal points from WW2.....lots more around that way...

    yup bit of research brings up this................

    Valentine

    A DD Valentine, restored to running condition, is in private ownership in Wolverhampton, England. The sunken wrecks of eight others, lost during training, are in the Moray Firth in Scotland; two have been located and are regularly visited by recreational divers. Two sunken Valentine DDs rest 3.5 miles out of Swanage Bay, Dorset. These tanks are 100 metres apart in 15 meters of water

    from here.................. DD tank - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    and i am sure the tanks i am on about are towards Hopeman......

    If you want them you can have them, I'm not in it for the money. I found them for free so I'll pass them on for free.
