My arms are absolutely killing me after all the digging today !!
The members of the RRPG met up at the British Army dump today. Those present were;
Steve T (+ son + son's best friend)
M3bobby (+ father)
With 11 of us present, we had a good blast at the dump with many seriously good finds being made.
Here are a couple of pictures of my finds, minus the contents of one bucket that we left on site ! DOH !
I had some good finds, including a 1907 bayo, some nice Bren mags and a Vickers Muzzle booster (recoil booster). I had stopped digging at about 4pm and was just having a chat with Davejb and Ade for a while. I then decided to have one last dig so went to a spot that 381st Digger had been at on our first visit. I was pulling out Sten gun parts for a few minutes then a nice LE bolt appeared. Davejb swore at me for being so lucky and, 2 seconds later I apologised to Dave as I pulled 2 more bolts out the hole, along with a very nice No.1 barrel end piece. 15 minutes later I had amassed about 20 LE bolts and 4 really nice No.1 ends. Dave swore at me more. LOTS more. Dangermouse shouted at whitehunter that he 'said they should have dug there!!!'. I gave them all an LE bolt to stop them moaning
Anyways, here's the first pictures of the days finds. There will be LOTS more to come !
Watch out for more pictures !
