    It doesn't look quite right for a dead reckoning computer to me. But I've only ever found the plastic ones so can't compare it to anything. How big is it across?

    Boot with comparison (long legged corcoran jump boot) there is a photo on the 56th FG website of a Lt Dick Allerton wearing this style of boot. Not the common for flight crew to wear I would have thought, as they are not in the slightest bit warm.

    well clearly nobody is suppose to see my first two pics, three times I have tried to post them, each time is a fail... so imagine this, a small black german cup, the top of a german waterbottle and a slightly broken orange butter dish.

    Great items. The Afrika Palmtree cup is superb (I would imagine!)

    Thanks Steve for getting the weekend sorted out and sorry for the delay in getting my photos posted.
    All of my bits came from the bomb range.
    First up is the top of a granade.
    Next is a mortar fin.
    And lastly is whats left of an artillery shell.
    These are great finds for me because i dont normally get the chance to find this sort of thing.

    Love the top off the grenade.....very unusual. Your artillery shell looks like a 40mm. Wonder what the hell chewed it up like that !
