Here's the last lot of finds from the weekend search, Im very pleased to discover that I had another aircraft dial
First up is a piece of air frame.
An unidentified buckle and perhaps a pull clip, my hand for scale.
A very robust and heavy box clip?, its around 4 inches long.
Now something I'm ecstatic to have, when i pulled this out of the ground I thought it was perhaps an internal component from some sort of meter. I couldn't see anything on its front, but once washed it revealed its identity. Sadly not the best of condition and due to this was washed very carefully.
I'm pleased to say I've managed to decipher what it says:-
reading from the top down UNDER CARRIAGE below to the left P? and the right S between them is says UNLOCKED. Below that is NIGHT & DAY. Below that and it was hard to read but I think it says PULLED? CHANGE LAMPS and finally below that LOCKED DOWN.
Was this a standard dial for many aircraft or specific to one type?
A fork that's been heavily modified, perhaps as a tool for a specific task or just as a good luck charm before a mission. I remember Whitehunter found one similar in one of his threads.
I have on idea what this well made heavy brass item is, it was riveted to a thin steel skin?
A few mixed finds, bicycle pump made of early plastic its marked Made in England, a cup shown before in the as found section. An unusual chromed tool? and a Nivea tin.
The final few will follow.
