    This is a find that i was never expecting to dig up!! A nice set of aerial gunners wings Sadly they have deen badly burnt.
    They are marked STERLING on the back but seem to only be silver coated. Sadly there is no makers name.

    Thanks Steve, I wasnt expecting to ever find a set but i suppose thats the great thing about our hobby you just never know. Gremlin allso found a set of air crew wings last year on a different dump and i said at the time it would be the only set we ever find. (i was wrong again) If you ask him nicely he might just add a photo of them for us to look at.

    Now then wile we are on 9th air force stuff i would like to show you this cockpit panel that i found years ago (again on my familys farm. Im 99% sure its A20 again. Areally nice couple of bits id'e kind of forgot about.

    I'm sorry to say my laptop has given up on me and I can't seem to be able to upload photos from my iPad so this is the end of this very long thread until I've got some cash for a new lappy.
    I will keep digging and saving stuff to show you.

    Sorry folks..

    Thanks for that Steve but I can't even do that by the look of it. I had a go yesterday and it won't let me do it.

    I've missed the last few posts on here, an amazing collection of bits! I love the ammo can and the turret control grip is very nice. Looking forward to more...

    Right everyone i think iv'e sorted my p.c problems (for now)
    The first item iv'e got to show you has been on my wish list for as long as i can remember. After years and years i found one. Its a mint condition VAT 69 Bottle..

    The red piece would have been on the neck of the bottle it came from a different site but now lives back with a bottle.

    Next up is a switch of some sort.
    It says GLIDE BOMBING ATTACH?????? STATIC PRESSURE SELECTOR VALVE.

    A nice glass boat. my thinking is it was the lid to a tobaco jar or somthing but the back is roken off so it ended up in the dump.

    A little tiny bottle that looks like it was medical it has a very small cross on the top and two very small holes in the lid it reminds me of the top of a dental floss box. I have found this type of bottle before but they have been stuck inside match safes so what ever it was it needed to be kept dry.
