    Default Carboot today - Sunday 7th April

    Well, first car boot of the season for me and not a bad one at all.

    Actually, it was bloody awful for the first hour.........all DVDs. women's shoes and baby clothes. Then I spotted something in a box and the shape made me look a bit more. Sure enough, I opened the bag and out popped a civilian WW2 gasmask, intact and dated 1938.

    I beat the guy down to 3.

    I can now replace the one in the canvas box I bought last year that had all but rotted away

    Funnily enough, this one has the 'owner's' name on one of the straps.

    Well done. I was at our local one today as well with high hopes as it was the first one of the season. And drew a big fat blank.
    So well done, nice score, and happy hunting for future ones.

    Funnily enough, the name on the mask corresponds with the current arable farming concern of J.Wood & Partners, Hill Top Farm, Walcote, Lutterworth, Leicestershire. More than a coincidence I would imagine.

    nice find stig . mind you beating the guy down from 3 pounds 10 pence to just 3 quid was a bit harsh but a saving is a saving i suppose!!!!
