Thought I'd share some items that have been very kindly given to me by a metal detectorist who has little interest in WW2 items. These bits were all recovered from an RAF base dump, although I think the 2 inch mortar fins probably came from somewhere else and just found their way into the bag of stuff !
Some nice bits and a great addition to my war room.
There are some good people out there !!
First up the 2 inch mortar fins. Can't think why they would be in an RAF dump so assume the guy found them somewhere else and sent them to me with the dump stuff
Fins nicely marked and dated on two of them.
An almost complete RAF plate and a complete but fire damaged NAAFI cup. First complete one in my collection
This razor still has the blade in it !
A anti-gas ointment tube and a 3 inch (no. 152) mortar fuze cap. An odd find for an RAF dump so maybe that came with the 2 inch fins ?
Now the bits that most certainly came from an RAF dump.
AM stamped parts. This one has the prefix 10B, Radio (Wireless and Radar) Aerial and Mast Equipment and Insulators.
Six AM stamped bits here.
5C - Aircraft Electrical Switches, Switchboxes, Relays and Accessory Items
5D - Aircraft Armament Electrical Stores
9 - Bomb and Torpedo Sights
10F - Radio (Wireless and Radar) Starters and Switch Gear
And lastly the 3 nicest pieces. An AM marked and dated spoon, and two NAAFI stamped forks All great additions to my collection.
Many many thanks to the kind gentleman who donated these bits. A great guy !
