    Lovely finds... although, I'm pretty sure that some of 'yours' were actually found by me, Mr J!

    Indeed a good day, with some great finds, bit disappointed that i did,nt pick up that piece of emergency runway, but i thought it was part of a roadway, also the usual good banter and insults were flying readily, i know there were a few that were disappointed that i did,nt end up falling down a hole as per usual

    Dave,
    That isn't just emergency runway! That matting was used for any area that needed to be driven on.
    On Wethersfield airfield they were even mounted onto frames to act as a wind break behind the hangers.
