    What we thought was a blackout lamp cover is actually a Lucas pushbike dynamo.

    Bits and bobs I found, still to be photographed, include:

    B-17 strike camera door hinge
    Assorted radio-related Air Ministry wiring connectors
    Assorted ordnance-related Air Ministry wiring connectors
    Bits of Lanc
    Bits of Mossie
    A couple of No.30 tail pistols
    Arming wires and Fahnestock clips
    Glim Lamp reflector
    British pressed-brass button (With a pronounced dot on the edge, I thought I'd been lucky enough to find half an escape compass, but it's just a manufacturing artefact. )
    Quick-release catch from a K Type Dinghy Pack

    Lighting parts; Airfield light glass and bulb (thanks Paul for the bulb), piece of Glim light and Lucas bulb blackout cover
    What's the thing on the left?

    Object on left appears to be some form of electrical fuse, "Morganite" marked item on right is an electrode from a carbon arc lamp (company is still in business & makes brushes for electric motors)

    Gasket (why the small cog in the middle?) and other pieces

    Not a gasket, but a frame plate from a clock

    Domestic items; what's Melanyl?

    Melanyl was a permanent marking ink - see MELANYL | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    Top black item looks like a rubber block section from a Mosquito U/C unit - but no scale so could be a vehicle suspension bump stop? Long item is a filter screen, probably aircraft engine or fuel related as I have found similar on digs.

    Rusty Pipe clip is a late wartime Wittek clip made in Chicago and fitted to most US aircraft - earlier ones are stainless steel and usually come out of the ground still usable!

    The curvy brass piece in the r/h corner looks like the nozzle from a RAF mae west bladder.
