I thought i had posted this but can't find the thread anywhere. Aplogies to the moderators if this is the second time i've posted this.
Every couple of weeks i go to a large car boot sale to have a dig around other peoples crap. Only one reason i go......to hunt for WW2 items.
I have found numerous items in the past few years and thought i'd post up 2 of my most recent purchases.
Firstly, i couldn't believe my eyes when i saw a seller pull this from a box of crap. I don't think he quite realised what he had as i got it for FOUR POUNDS !!!!
Not only that but the original replacement eye pieces were in the compartment in the lid. Dated 1938 and still in original wrappers
I got these 2 weeks apart. The 50 cal one first.....that was rusted to hell and back with no original paint left on it. The 30 cal was full of old tools and had been badly bashed about. It took me 2 weeks to get them back into shape, stripped, primed and re-painted. I re-did the stenciling as well What do you think ? Not bad for TWO POUNDS EACH !
