    That tag looks like it could be a leftover from Operation Tiger around the Slapton Sands area in April '44

    It was found in a field in Stoford in Somerset right next to the mainline railway which connects London to Exeter, Cardiff, Paignton...

    I'm assuming it's from a machine gun mount but I don't know what the serial numbers mean ???
