    Default A few finds from a d-day training zone

    Hi all,
    Well out of five days away i only managed to get out 45mins before last light,typically two K,s to cover over rough terrain - was it worth it? Yep,damn right!! Not many finds to show,i spent a while at the target end of a range im guessing. I found the firing end but it was too dark to make much progress.Did i mention i had drunk a bit before hand? Hope you like the finds

    Nice mortar fins by the way Should be a date on one of the vanes

    Thanks Steve,and i was hoping you were going to tell me! It was found in the same area as the 2in mortar tails and shrapnel.I thought it looked similar to the ejector mortar tails i found on another site?
