Article about: by WoodyUK Hi John, The piece your referring to is the result of an exploding Grenade! The spirelled compression on the metal only happens when the grenade explodes. Lee I got my wires cross

    Nice finds Steve. I hoped the bit of Mustang was an aircraft serial number. US aircraft were numbered by year of order then individual identity. The only one that comes up on google is 42-50725 which was a B24. Shame.

    Yeah......I got the same info....B-24. It is a shame as I was hoping it would identify an aircraft and a pilot !

    Never mind

    The light fitting looks to me very much like a Lucas ammeter, the very early war type 1939/40. If you measure it I can compare it to my own.
