    Hear are some of todays finds from my 8th air force dup. I say some because its just started raining hear so i dont fancy being outside cleaning them.
    First are some of the .50cal shells. I dont normally bring these home but im after as many as i can get at the moment because im cleaning them and belting them back up again.
    The throat mic is really good & its in top order (if only it could talk)
    A load of tooth brushes and a tooth paste tube. there is a lense from a flying goggle a really sweet after shave bottle and two more dog tags (allways good to find) and last is a insurance card from the PACIFIC MUTUAL LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY. Going to scan this later so you can see it better. And a box full of stuff i havent cleaned yet.

    Hope you like

    Must have had to much time on there hands i suppose?? Maybe they were trying to make a bigger piece of trench art and this was part of it?? Who knows...

    Right cleaning has been slow but this is a couple of photos of a compass i found. Iwant sure if it was a compass or pocket watch but i managed to carefully clean it up in bye soaking it in wd40 for ages then cleaning some more i got the seal clean and managed to pop it open. Now it opens and closes like a new one. Hope you like
