    This came up today. I think its the laminated glass from a ball turret? Or was this window made of plexiglass?

    Very nice.

    The buckles are probably safety belt/seatbelt buckles, in the context of the other items.

    Im 99% sur this is part of the bomb release mechanism (has it got a correct name)sadly its not in great shape and i dont think its going to last very long out of the ground.

    A-2 Bomb Release, sadly ground-recovered ones are usually in this state.

    I think this may be a charging handle from maybe a ball turret or a top turret.
    And a large ring that has a hinge so maybe a light cover? Im not sure its quite heavy and i cant see any numbers on it.
