    What a good job. I mean to find it, to take a pictures and finally, to clean it. looks like archaeology report. What is that on a fourth picture? Near butt part? It's white. Looks like leaf or an ancient spearhead.

    It is, as you have correctly spotted, a leaf. It is WD stamped and found with the rest of the WW2 relics at a depth of 4 feet. Not worked out what it is for yet, but I suspect it was for photosynthesis.

    Thanks mossie. I was indeed aware of their use in Thompson slings. We have found thousands of them at this site.

    Indeed, a couple of years back I found a 'seam' of them. The slings had obviously been set light to as I found clumps of hundreds of buckles all welded together. The 'seam' was about three feet wide by six feet broad by about a foot deep. I managed to get about 100 of them from the edge of the seam where the fire damage wasn't too bad. Such a shame they set fire to the pile !!!! If only we could have been there before they set light to them.....and the rest of the dump for that matter.
