    Nice haul And great ID on those practice bomb bits as well

    The best though is the data plate matched to an aircraft. Fantastic !

    A couple more bits I picked up yesterday can any one ID them? I feel I should know what the little thing is with the hole in but can't think. And the large piece looks like a nose fuse???

    Looks like the nut from a turn buckle. Is the hole threaded? could match this clamp on ebay at the moment

    Shame I didn't root around your 'to clean' box. Found 3 kidney plates myself a few years back. They should be dated......mine were all post war unfortunately

    No it's not threaded on the inside it looks like arming wire should pass through it or somthing.
