Nice info guys !
I am, as usual, impressed with the depth of knowledge that, between us all, is available on this forum.
And in my excitement I forgot to reply to John Brandons freply......
John - You have a metal detector AND an old airbase visible from where you live AND you've never searched it ???? I'll give you a bloody slap next time I see you !!!!!!!!!! Get out there ! If you don't can you tell me and Luckystrike where it is and we'll come and stay over at your house and search it ourselves !!!
