Those are really astonishing finds! Especially the 2cm Flak magazines. Did they ever test German guns out there?
Mind you, wouldn't it be great if we dig up a 20mm flak gun next time we go
For gawds sake dont put ideas into mouses head, can you imagine it, theres him walking along and he trips over the barrel, how much could one person take.!!!!!
ha ha ha... well, you know if anyones gonnna find one, you know who it will be... well, me or Steve that is
Thought you'd seen all the finds?
Wrong ! I am still cleaning stuff, and LUCKYSTRIKE still hasn't posted any of his finds. COME ON LS !!!! Post your stuff !!!
Anyway, I was cleaning stuff again tonight, all picked up at the same dig
Here we go.....
First up some items that need IDing.
Not sure what this is but, given where it was found, it must have something to do with a firearm. Measures about 5 inches in length.
Two more items that I am unsure of. The top one looks like either a locking handle from a Vickers tripod, or possibly a Bren carry handle. No idea what the other item is
Found a huge pile of these........end pieces from webbing/sling straps. Also found a few more Kerr sling bits.
A pull through, (Vickers ?), what looks like either a Vickers water pipe or possibly a bit of plumbing from the bathroom sink, ( ), and a handle of some sorts.
Close up of the Vickers pull through. WD arrow and what looks like 'ENET'.
Last but not least a trigger gauge and an LE butt-stock ID disc. What makes this disc a little special is what I found on the other side....
.....RAF 610 Sqd !!!!!!! These guys flew out of Biggin Hill and Hawkinge during the Battle Of Britain flying Spitfires. Quite a squadron !!! I am SO PLEASED with this little find from the site
That's it for now, apart from to say;
POST YOUR FINDS LUCKYSTRIKE !!!!!
The "other item" is a loading crank handle for the above 100rd Bren drum magazine.Two more items that I am unsure of. The top one looks like either a locking handle from a Vickers tripod, or possibly a Bren carry handle. No idea what the other item is
All the best,
Hi Steve, The first photo shows an item I should know but cant place it right now, the second shows a Vickers cross pin for mounting the gun to the tripod and the bit underneath it is a Bren 100round drum winder (Someone else posted a photo of some others a few pages back) The pull throgh is a Cleaning rod from a Vickers or Bren chest. The Lee Enfield stock disk is very nice with the RAF markings, the back shows the WD crows foot, very nice.
