    Dear 381st, nice collection of dog tags. Do/have you researched these people. Would make an excellent write up.

    Went back today for a little look round and this is the best of the finds.
    Anyone know what sort of knife it is?
    The light fitting doesnt look like its from a vehicle any idears?
    The "receptacle bomb release type A-1" are really nice iv not found any before and not quite sure where they go on the aircraft.

    The A-1 Bomb Release Receptacle fits on the reverse side of the bomb rack, behind each A-2 or A-4 Bomb Release.
    It's the electrical connection for them.

    All the best,

    Nice flare base. Never seen one marked like that before. All mine (and I have about 30) have no marks at all !!!! Lucky bugger !

    On your main picture, the thing next to the blue glass looks like part of a bomb pistol/fuse. Can you do me a close up please 381st please ?

    Nice 50cals and toothbrushes Can I see a Mansion Polish lid under that pile of stuff in the middle ?
