    That's one real impressive relic. I hope the soldier didn't have it on him when it was hit - looks like done by a machine gun. Or shrapnel.

    I forget exactly what the Int/28 means but can find out.

    Nice one Ade,
    Two clean 'through shots' - always makes me marvel over the laws of physics when I see piercings like these in such a lightweight item!
