    Default Some Iraqi Items

    Hi everyone, thought I would show some of my Iraqi items, these were generally purchased from British veterans. First is a mortar sight, taken from a 120mm Yugoslavian mortar in 1991. If anyone can tell me why it has a radiation symbol on it, I would be interested to know.

    Great items Douglas. I can only wonder what the value of these items will be in 30 years or so.

    I read that the mortar sights light source needs some radioactive material. At least this read in a manual of an M224 60mm Light Mortar: "Light Source: Self-contained, radioactive tritium gas (H3)"

    Thankyou, yes it will be interesting to see if they accumulate much value. I have paid on average about 15 per item. I can only assume that the radiation is not hazardous!
