    Default 2 Hours 60+ Targets Excellent Results

    Hi all,
    Spend 2 hours detecting

    Finds: .303's, buttons, button stick, kit bag lock, base plug, shrapnel, coins (pennys, halfpennys and a sixepence)

    Could any one tell me what the german badge is and the fusiliers badge

    Many thanks,
    Happy hunting

    John

    Also went into my local dealers this morning and brought a war medal 10 which i thought was a good deal

    Hi John, the "German" badge with Swastika is actually a British National War Savings Committee badge from WW1.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi John, oddly enough they dropped the design for WW2 LOL!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Excellent haul for 2 hours John

    Good old fragile 303's.........bloody things fall to bits as soon as look at 'em half the time ! Only ones I've ground dug that I could rely on to not break apart are sand dug ones. Did you manage to get a headstamp off any of them ?

    The base plug may clean up well enough to get a date off it. Be interesting to see

    Where were you digging by the way (not the location but the 'type') ? Old gunnery range, airfield or barracks site ?

    Cheers

    Hi Steve,
    I havn't cleaned any of the .303's but there all dated 1940's

    i will clean the plug off for you in a min

    My guess is that it was a encampment for the troops waiting for D-Day. Its the same place i found the tommy helmet.

    Very nice

    I get totally excited when I find one for exactly the same reason ! I even have one made of brass in my collection, which is rather unusual
