    Finally finished cleaning last weekends finds, there were also plenty of WW2 type bottles that aren't worth showing here but will be going into the Relic Rescue and Preservation Groups fund.

    First up is a British kit bag clamp.

    A US water bottle cup, Ive found a few of the aluminium type in the past but this is the first all steel one I've recovered. This one appears to be a tin coated example rather than the zinc preservation method. Sadly its too rusted to read any markings it may have once carried. Another picture for reference is shown out of order in last position on this post

    A selection of bottles, including a nice company addressed poison bottle that could actually be pre war. There's also a Lysol bottle, a couple of Optrex eye baths, a wide mouthed hexagonal poison that probably contained a dry powder, a large pint sized mug, an ink bottle with pen rest and a WW2 style beer bottle. I love these war time beer bottles the design was a radical rethink on the old style which had a wide and long neck for UK beer bottles. A saving in glass of one third to one half on the old ones. These bottles are still quite weighty manufactured for strength for reuse, unlike the thin glass disposable continental beer bottles of today that still use this shape.

    A toothpaste tube SOLIDOX and a huge toothbrush handle, never seen one like this before when found thought it was a baby's hair brush. The yellow one is the standard sized war time one for scale.

    A Coca Cola bottle probably UK manufactured, this one is marked the same as Whitehunters posted previously but mine is marked 43 I guess 1943.

    Three footwarmers, these are probably pre war but Im thinking as the dump site contains plenty of brick rubble and house clearance items Im wondering if perhaps bomb damaged property was cleared away and dumped here. If so perhaps thats how these ended up here? But of course it could just be that rubber hot water bottles were coming into use around this time and being so much more comfortable on your feet these old stoney footwarmers could just have been dumped after being replaced.

    You've cleaned that one up well, nice find.
    If the rubber is supple enough to get the two edges of the tear together a line of superglue along the edges and hold them together for a couple of mins and its fixed. You can also improve the colour of the rubber and hide rust stains by using black boot polish and rubbing it in.
    Good work a nice relic, now its time to get on with the other one .
