    As was commented upon last week, the dump has few aviation finds and is far more 'domestic' but even so had a few enjoyable hours today. Amongst the finds were two complete NAAFI cups, buttons, 303s, numerous RAF marked broken sections, some marked glassware, an AM marked fork and various other bits and bobs... oh an yes a china marble!! Presumably the RAF found a way to gamble on marbles!!

    No ,some people do spoons as well, oh BTW, I've got the old boy by the short hairs, because I left my spade in my hole AND HE was using it to dig, so there, there's nothing worse than a sad poacher

    Here are a few of my finds from the two days. Bit disappointed after the 15th just turned up domestic items but, after a full day on the 22nd, I went home with a few aviation-related bits. Nice Spitfire Mk.I component, but which part? Benzedrine Inhaler interesting: Benzedrine and derived amphetamines were used as a stimulant for armed forces during WWII and the Vietnam War. Thanks to Steve for his perseverance arranging this dig and for leaving behind the shaving brush.
