    Very nice finds


    Image 1808 Access panel with single Dzus fastner looks like the ground battery socket cover from a Halifax bomber.

    Thought I would have a morning out before the dreaded snow stops everything,Well im glad I did.
    Bumper harvest of .303s today all in one pile,Some nice lables and a .50cal which caused a bit of concern as when I first found it it looked live,But a bit of investigation revealed that it was emptied at some stage and the projectile placed back.


    Will need to spend a few hours now cleaning.

    Nice bits Mossie. The Alphabet plate is interesting, I wonder if it was fitted to a radio somewhere, never seen one on aircraft though. The previous flap with numbers probably isn't Halifax, their part numbers usually start with 57.

    I live just across the road from the former airforce base of Burtonwood. I often go walking around the area to see what I can find. Most of the site has now been turned into a housing estate. But those of us who can remeber it back in the 1980's know where to find stuff.

    A large section of Burtonwood Road has now been blocked off and pedestrianised. But just recently I have been making loads of finds of small black bags with a knot tied at the top. Inside appears to be some kind of brown goo that stinks to high heaven. Some kind of sealant putty perhaps?
