    Hello LUCKYSTRIKE (sorry!) the bell was a bail out bell from a Fortress that came down outside Lowestoft. All the crew got out bar two, one caught on the tail by his 'chute and the pilot who held it steady for the others.

A little more scraping revealed a lion and the edge of a cast iron fireplace. The Spitfirespares.com website mentioned previously has a few digs i've been involved with in the 'recovery' section. Here are a couple of items that were properly id'd. (legally removed with de ac certificates)

    With referrence to the pump photo,it COULD be the
    emergency hydrolic pump located with the tool kit,
    in the port wing on a P51.
    It fitted into a custom made mount in the enginebay.
