    Default Barn Finds

    Today's car boot was a bust for militaria... few items, not much I wanted among those and/or sellers asking more than I wanted to pay...

    However, if Rich will forgive me using this thread again, & all will indulge me in non-flea market content...

    Those who've read other posts of mine may recall that, over many years, my grandfather accumulated piles of cra… I mean loads of stuff that might come in handy some day!

    I've randomly discovered a couple of things of interest in the past so, while visiting my parents yesterday, I thought I'd make a more methodical search of their old barn where I knew grandad stashed some stuff in the past.

    A couple of hours going through an old chest of drawers & various boxes & I'd gathered a reasonable pile to sort through

    Old War Department 'screw' jack & handles (with a couple of random parts):
    Flea Market Finds

    Made by Ernest Lake Ltd & marked 1 ton & 1963 (I think - figures seem to represent the year but adjoin what looks to be a part number); I will have to try & find what vehicle(s) it would have been used for.

    Collection of tools etc to sort through:

    The only thing here that is definitely military is the kit bag lock but some of the tools might be as well … they've had a hard life & many markings are rusted over etc but some have the 'look' eg the adjustable wrench (near LHS). More cleaning & examination will follow

    Just to prove there's somebody out there researching everything

    Found an old (British) vehicle jack? www.classic-british-car-jacks.uk will tell you what it was for!

    Land Rover in my case - perfect; that covers all of my collecting interests

    & I knew I recognised my new adjustable spanner (wrench) but here's the reference that confirmed I have a Lucas Girder type & this model was an issued item:
    Adjustable Spanner: History, Origins and Development to 1970

    No dates visible on mine so this also helps me know its not 1922 to late-1930s (no pipe-grip option), so is either early 1900s or, more likely, 1940-60

    Many years ago when I lived in Wisconsin, we went to a massive Flea Market held at the State Fairgrounds in West Allis, Milwaukee suburb. At this point in my collecting I was focusing on US WWII items. Stopping at one vendor's table I picked up a canteen with cover. The cover was missing the belt clip and on opening one flap, it appeared that the canteen had been painted a yellow green color. I put it down and walked away, but not too far. I went back, removed the canteen from the cover, put it back in and gladly paid the $5.00 asking price. This is what I just bought, a 1943 Dated Ethocel Canteen. Not a bad investment!
