    Very nice finds. Looks like your wife came across a metal detectorist selling off some of his stuff

    Well done to the mrs !

    Best thing my wife Sarah found at junk market was a canvas satchell Air Ministry marked and dated 1943. Whwn i looked inside i found it was a complete medical kit for RAF bomber crews. Everything inside was complete and unopened inc burn gloves and creams, bandages, splints and various other items. I asked the guy what he wanted for it and he said "well, its just rubbish so a fiver". I later sold on to a collector of RAF stuff and he snatched it off me for 65.00! Not bad for a fiver!!! You really have to look in these junk markets and car-boots as you never know just what you might find and having a little knowledge goes a hell of a long way. regards, Tim.

    I know it's part of a machine gun belt but that's about it.

    zephyr4, IMO it is a section of the ammo belt from a German heavy machine gun the MG 08, the so called ' Devils Paint brush ',the standard machine gun of the Imperial German Army. Great find, do you think your wife could find me one !
