    Unfortunately, I don't believe that there is enough to these parts to absolutely identify and locate them. Very intriguing,though!

    Top three photos appear to show two shattered pistons from an engine - can't id the type due to condition, though they are not Merlin Pistons. Bottom two look like aircraft pieces and again probably from an engine, but sorry unable to identify.

    I also had that impression myself from oic 1 and 2 , but the diameter was 100mm and the piston of the Merlin from the lancaster is 137mm so not possible....yesterday I was visting a friend and he showed me the part because he had it found before it belongs in the main landing gear.

    The last picture looks to be one half of the two sections of mounting brackets for the tailplane inside the rear fuselage..
