    Can't help for the circular things; I am very curious to see what it is, my self.
    Here is the best electrolysis explaination I could find:
    Electrolysis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    and thise is what the HJ award should look like.

    Hi Mark, top left is the clip from a belt buckle. The spent case looks like it is from a 9mm round?

    The three badges I have circled are from a WHW fund raising set of badges which featured anicent Germanic battle sheilds. The single badge I have circled is actually Post war DDR (East German.) The one under the spent case is another WHW badge.

    Cheers, Ade.

    It is the best I could do!! I am sure that there are some more elaborated explanations that you could find on the net, I have got some but they are in French.

    Hi Ade,thanks very much for the info. I see what you mean with the 3 you ringed,when i first saw them i thought they were very celtic/nordic..looking. What about the 3 aluminium rings Ade, any idea?

    Stuka, i very much appreciate any help at all,yours no less than others.I was hoping it might have been easier to remove,rather than learning chemistry tho
