Wow great finds 318,again great to see the find in situ PB,congrats for both
Thanks for that Paul i nearly didnt bring it home. Just had a quick poke around in the snow and found this one i found ages ago.
Any idears on this tube? Iv found 2 of these on 2 different air fields. .50 for size.
My digging buddy seems to think they might be ordnance related?? Whatever it is its well made.

Some odds and ends from other digging days.
Great finds Andy, and superb ID work by PB yet again.
Good Stuff mate, You must have loads of mess tins by now
Good selection, the black tube is a push rod cover from the front of a radial engine cylinder (you just can't see them on Paul's photo!). The bakelite electrical plugs are sockets for heated flying suits.
Thanks for that Ian i wasnt really expecting to get that rod ID. Is it the part iv'e marked in red on this picture?
My "big nut" came up really well (so glad i didnt leave it in the mud!!!
That switch for the clothing is GREAT !
