I've been at it again ! WW2 airfield. 1st visit of 2009

Article about: Hi All Well the snow finally melted and the weather turned warmer so I decided to get out to the WW2 airfield I have been going to. Not as good a day as when i found the Merlin exhaust ports

    Steve,
    The .303 case is similar to a drill round, but the grooves in a drill one are usually not tapered and painted red in a plated case, (for repeated use), and they have no flash hole in the primer pocket.
    Cheers,
    navyman.

    Nice Finds Steve,

    Showing my ignorance here but what is a 'Sash Lock' (not off a sash window I hope), i have found one of these amongst other smaller aircraft bits and bobs on a ww2 airbase whilst detecting.

    Thanks Guys

    I have just got permission to detect on a local farm where a Hurricane crashed in WW2. Looked at an aerial shot on flash earth and have noticed a strange discoloured area in one stubble fields. Will let you know how I get on.

    Cheers
