    Great thread, the most exiting thing about digging a dump is that you never know what is going to turn up next. I have been digging old rubbish dumps for many years including a between the wars military one near Dover. All we found were heaps of old tins and a few bottles. Interestingly they included a green codd bottle made by the 'Riley MNFC London SW'. I believe bottles embossed 'made in England' are post 1900.

    well I was going to photo it, but seeing as you said I masturbate too much on facebook and my Dad was the next person to comment, I think I will just let you wait now!

    I will take a photo shortly, just sat down for lunch I will photo it on the Besa ammo tin (as this has a round size stamped into the lid), with a .303 and a .30-06 to show scale

    ha ha ha ha.... yeah yeah.. my head stamp is bad, i think it miss-fed, There is a slice out the bottom and the head was bent at an angle, making it easy to pull out and empty. The casing has slight splits where the head was forced over. But I will try and photo whats left of the markings.
