Article about: This is not a sniper scope, it has no turrets for elevation or windage. It is a gun sighting scope as used in tanks or on artillery pieces. John

    Sunday May 1st, what I think is a home guard belt and a few interesting books, the purple one is called Descent into Danger by Scotty Young, whose aircraft crashed in Poland, this is his story of capture by the Russians and his life there until his final return to the UK (book is signed by Scotty), the left book is "The Marines Were There", the story of the Royal Marines during WW11.

    No carboots last weekend due to rain, a few finds for today (Sat 14th), a wartime British MkIII Turtle Helmet (shell only), P80 ammo box, a few WW11 WD tools, a 1934 Aero Engine book and a 1942 dated modellers book for making British and German aircraft, also 3 buttons that will be suitable to replace those on the camoflage jerkin, shown a few pictures ago but with post war added buttons.

    PS This afternoon, I did a small display at our local fete, which as always creates a lot of interest amongst the visitors.

    And one last thing this weekend, my wife asks "would you go up to the village hall and take the cardboard/rubbish left over yesterdays fete, up to the local tip", so not being one to turn down an opportunity, I set off with the task in hand . As you can see, lying in one of the skips was this 1943 Lee Enfield case, full of broken plastic fishing rods (my first thought was is there a rifle in it ?), with the rods despatched back to the bin, I am now the new owner of a rather dusty case. As they say "one good turn, deserves another".
