    I would believe there are more bits and pieces scattered around on that place. Just take a map, pinpoint were it was found and draw a line to london. (or the closest big city in ww2) The rest of the pieces should be along that line.

    Good Luck

    It's on EBay for £1500
    Does that mean Glen's friend ( or family ) is 'testing the waters' to get the most from our young colleague?

    Poor form if that's the case IMO .....

    Sounds a bit entrepreneurial if you ask me. Still, there's no obligation to buy this oversized paperweight is there?

    That would only be a case if Glen was still interested in purchasing it. He maybe decided to pass on it.

    I agree it would be in poor form if he still wanted to buy it. Though I think it is already in poor form to charge a friend for something you found for free, depending how close they are. That's just me though.

    Thank you all very much for your replies.

    Unfortunately I cannot make a purchase - not due to money but due to size... it won't fit through my side gate!!

    Anyway it has been put on eBay for a second time at £1500 - the price isn't unreasonable just the size.

    Thank you, Glen.
