    the first unknown object on the left looks to be the end cap of a us type strap like the one in the pic it was also found on other straps aswell

    and i think the last pic is the H delay mechanism from the bolt of a 1928 thompson smg

    The ceramic sherd is from a british stoneware vessel of the late 19th to early 20th Century....... since it was found in a ww2 trench context it's almost certainly from a British Rum Ration Jug.
