    Luckystrikes knowledge of beer bottles is legendary. He takes it so seriously his fridge is full of them.

    Hi Cornishboy,
    It sounds like you've been busy again, good on you.
    I dont know why but I cant see your pictures all I get for each post is as shown below?, and clicking to enlarge sadly doesn't seem to work either....

    'Oh and a stopper for luckystrike. embossed war grade'

    Click to enlarge the picture

    For reference, The War Grade vulcanite (a rubber and clay mixture) stoppers have a little scoop out of the top to save on raw materials, ie take that scoop out of 10 stoppers and you've got enough to make an eleventh. I also understand that the mixture of the vulcanite compound may also have altered during the war reducing the rubber and increasing the clay.

    All the best
    LUCKYSTRIKE

    The big lump of stuff you've got needs a smack with a hammer. Once you have smashed off the outer layer of crap, the object may be more readily identifiable. At the minute it's just a lump of stuff ! (And yes, I am serious when I say smack it with a hammer.......i do this quite regularly to remove the heavy outer layer of crud).

    If your pictures have disappeared, please PM Dimas to let him know. It may be that some stuff got lost on the migration that he doesn't know about.

    Cheers

    Steve T
