    This is unreal this site... a friend of mine said he had a few hours spare today and said "could we go digging", sure lets go! So we had 3 hours on site...

    The results where as expected at first PIAT stuff and a few broken Triang carts. The I heard a little voice say "Dan, whats all this?" So i went o investigate... (don't get excited yet) in his larger than normal hole, but not big enough for Dave to fall in yet was lots of rusty cans So as normal I had lots of nice and helpful advice "Dig them out fishy, there might be some good stuff under and amounst them". I left him to it and wondered off. About 15 mins passed and I heard a little voice say "I got some stuff?" I wondered back over not expecting to see anything but more carp. However, he produces a practice 2inch mortar wooo, and a few of the US arty launchin carts, mortar fins and other odd bits. Well, I was in this now trench like hole. Stuff turned out to be everywhere just see the pics. Sadly we ran out of time and could see more in the trench just didn't have the time to keep digging... were are back on sat!

    I'm hoping that I'm right with these bits and that they are practice Teller Mines!!!

    What are those big round lids that are all dated 1940? with the two little clips that seem to do nothing.

    Please tell me someone knows.

    Dm - on the pic of the big round lid, is that ACC I see stamped above the 1940 date?

    Isn't ACC the standard abbreviation for Army Catering Corps? May be they are some kind of lid for provisions storage containers, though what specifically I have no idea?

    cheers
