    Default A years hard work has paid off

    Firstly id just like to say what a great web-site.
    Well after a year of rumageing around on the old rubbish dump on my airfield we have started to clean all the finds up and start to reserch everything. My finds range from dog tags to toothbrushes to aircraft wreckage. Over the next few weeks i will post pictures of all my finds for you guys to look at. For now ive just posted a few of my favourites.
    Digging this site wasnt enough to find most of this. All of the smaller finds were found by sifting the dirt with a garden sieve.
    The only question i have is why am i finding so many dog tags and even a couple of doubles? One or two are missprints so prob just thrown out as rubbish but no one can make out how the others got there.
    Iv shown all my finds to the chaps at the 381st museum they were so pleased someone had taken time to save this stuff from decay. They cant wate to have it as part of their museum next year!
    Let me know what you think.

    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    These are really impressive finds. I don't think I have ever seen such a large group of dog tags like this before from an airfield.

    Cheers, Ade.

    hi and welcome, i love your findings. You got a lot of dog tags there. Are the red and the white things light covers from a plane?? That's what i thought when i saw them for the first time.
