    Looks like the housing of an aircraft microswitch - they weren't very "micro" in those days! I found a complete one on B-24 crash site locally, but gave it to a relative of one of the crew, because it had a nice plate on it! - probably a standard item fitted to many aircraft.

    I've found another photo of AC 42-30834 "Mickey Finn"
    Showing 50mm damage to the rudder aug 10th 1943. ( friendly fire)

    I managed to get out for a prod around today. These are some straight out the ground photos.

    Another old spice bottle. Not so long ago I was busting to find one now I think I have 5 but they are all talcum bottles so I need to keep digging for the aftershave one.

    A very small piece of ammunition tracking.

    What's left of a machete.

    And the best find of the day was this control lever. ( not sure of its function yet )

    The Machete looks like the folding version from the survival kit.

    Cheers Cornish, get out there and get digging!!!

    Hangarman,
    Yeah that's right. Surprisingly we have found loads of these, not just at this site but 2 or 3 other dumps have allso produced them. Allways seemed strange to me.

    I thought you might like to have a sneak peak into my office in my house. Big thanks to Steve T for the glass cabinet.
    It doesn't look like this anymore it's been changed round but it gives you an idear of the war room.

    Hi Andy, Fantastic finds, When does the B17 re-build begin? Did you dig up the base ball?

    Ha. I just need a couple more bits. :-)
    The baseball and the bat you can just see in the corner near the flak helmet came from a baseball game held in Gosfield park 410th bomb group. Against the village. The next weekend they played cricket against the village. The bat and ball were given to a child in the village called Ted owers and I got it when he died a couple of years ago. It's a Louisiana slogger.
