    WH

    Some very intriguing items. I need to look at the settings on my MD as I am sue it hasn't got a 'Floppy ears' discrimination dial. It may have though.........

    The brass items with the WD arrow on them are probably bits off fuses but what exactly I'm not sure. I'll have a rummage and see if I can find them.

    PS Has the rabbit got a WD arrow on it ?

    Agree that the main photos appear to be parts fro ordnance/fuses.

    BTW, thats not just any rabbit guys, thats the ultra rare"Relic Hunting Rabbit in brown" (Rabbittus Relicus) Identified by the long ears and (very) dark eyes. Also note the "two - tone" effect of the markings and the special "safety cage" in the background of the photo.

    Regards etc

    I think we should be more worried about the fact that WH is wearing Totes AND appears to also be wearing pink nail varnish. Last time I saw him he definitely didn't have pink nail varnish on, although I did mention to him that the frock he was wearing probably wasn't a good idea when digging an RAF dump.

    i think the small item in hand is a gearbox drain plug it should have or had a magnet in the end of it
    it looks very familier could be from an AEC matatdor ?? im not sure though
    the large one looks familier allso but its got me stuck at the moment

    Haha! thanks for the comments guys. I didn't know i put a picture of my rabbit 'Macky' on. i think my sister must have uploaded when i was out of the room Payback for writing on her facebook wall


    Ian. We also find lots of live shells around this area so Steve is right about them being fuse parts.

    I had another go this evening. Found 7 more fishing wieghts uncle had 7 and me mate had 2 more of the fuse things

    Cheers

    Guys, you are missing something vital here, the rabbit is clearly using semaphore with its ears, if my memory serves, it says "Where the hell is Watership Down "
