    LOL

    You certainly hit the jackpot , mate ~

    Perhaps I should send you some "Bushman's insect repellent" ~ LOL ~ It is the only one I find stops March flies and developed in New Guinea for extreme tropical conditions ~

    And many of your finds are in nice condition too~ Well Done!

    Hehe,Thanks AT

    Here are the three brass tube thingies I found yesterday. One of the best finds I ever made I think They are for german Meldehunde, messenger dogs used at the front. The message was rolled up on the inner tube and it was screwed shut and the dog ran to its destination. One of the tubes had some rust which had destroyed a small part of it. I havent got it open yet. The two other ones is in much better condition and both opened,but no messages inside.

    VERY Cool find there, mate ~

    Best we can hope for on the face it all is a Carrier pigeon message tube and neck strap ! LL

    ( We have a number of battalion sites listed as Pigeon Lofts and command centres.)
