    This is probably my favourite find from the day
    It's an aircraft fire/escape axe.
    Found whilst not really looking, I returned to my digging bag to get a cup of tea (it was a cold day) and while drinking just kicked the leaf mould around to discover this on the surface

    It's the lid from a squirty-type oil can, the sort with a spout and trigger.

    Yup, Merlin SU carb filter screen, bolts directly to the top of the carb.

    See HERE for the matching bolt holes.
