    Hi Martyn,

    I find them great in the Winter over here, you need the energy for a full days digging in a Norman Winter! A friend of mine brings them over when he's on leave, the rations they get now are far better than the tinned stuff from years ago.

    Cheers,

    Steve

    Haha! Always love getting my face into them. My better half thinks/knows I'm weird! Agree, better stuff now than we used to get.

    Anyway, back to the thread... 2" mortar. Para-illum round I think. Drop "Navyman" a PM if you find anymore tails.

    Keep up the good work!

    Martyn.

    Hi Martyn,

    yep, found a lot of exploded and unexloded 2" Mortars, and 3" as well, para illume, WP/SMK, HE, The He ones we've found still have the pain on them, the protective caps and the coloured bands, but too dodgy to mess with.
