    Default 8th Air Force finds. Winter 09/10 part 1

    Well over the winter iv been over to my dump a couple of times and i think the cold fingers and toes have been worth it.
    Firstly 3 machete's which all came from the same place and one i got from ebay to show what they looked like when new.
    Next are some canteen mugs i found. As you can see i have cleaned two of them up and they look really good. I just couldnt stop myself makeing a coffee in one of them
    Next is a really nice 50cal gun sight. Im so happy to have this!! Now i just need to dig up the mg
    Next is a life boat knife. I cleaned one side and left the other and it comes up like new.
    Next is part of a leather flight helmet which is now soaking in baby oil to bring it back to life and stop it drying out. (THATS A TOP TIP IF YOU FIND ANY LEATHER) Then a nice little razer made bye GEM.
    A wing tip light. It has left written on it.
    Some instrument lights red and orange.
    A oil drum spanner (think thats what you would call it) Im fairly sure it was for opening a oil drum. And a tiny set of spanners.
    Next is a tiny little hammer head its made of brass. Any idear what it would have been used for?????????
    And lastly a lighter.
    Hope you enjoy looking as much as i enjoyed finding. Will be back soon with some more including a stack of plexi glass and some more dog tags.
