    April 12th, local vintage farm/tool sale, 2x WW1 wire cutters, WW1 entrenching tools, WW2 spanners/gas mask and tool bag. Tankard is marked VE Day 1945 HMS Bherunda, which I believe is a RNAS Station (Colombo Racecourse Airstrip).

    I've been a bit slack this summer, so I will try to catch up and show some of my summer finds. First off this little group from the local boot sale. Interesting ashtray marked to RN SBS Retired Memebers Association.

    Another summer purchase from the local auction house, this lot went unseen by most people at the auction as it was on a back shelf in a dusty card board box, only 1 other bidder, who had left a bid of 100 and the hammer dropped to me at 105. These photos show only the WW1 items, half as much again in mixed WW2 paper work also. The most outstanding item was a Soldiers Small Book to a R W Robinson (KIA), 10th Battn Lincs Regt No 1353, inside was a note written in 1976, by someone who had visited the Commonwealth War Graves Commision, to find out his details and where he was buried. Also tucked inside was a postcard sized prayer and the letter that would have come with a death plaque, I think.

    A few more of this years finds, all at one one car boot, the part of horse harness is 1916 dated and unused, it was in a box of bridles and other assorted horse items, but it just so stood out as military issue that I couldn't miss it. The bronze photo frame is a bit special, I've not seen anything this big before.
