    It is indeed a PIAT.

    I wonder how it ended up there? Still a nice find.

    We have some PIAT info on the forum. Do a search.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Could it be worth anything? Like do you think a museum would buy it?

    I somehow doubt any museum would buy it given the condition and lack of any know history surrounding this particular peice. But I am sure you will find a ready market with collectors here

    Sorry I don't have a idea of a value for you.

    Cheers, Ade.

    It looks like a british WWII Anti tank launcher.
    These were a nasty thing to shoot. Hard on the man useing it. Please refer too British WWII small arms. They would have a picture of it. I hope this helps.
    Thanks,

    Is there a military base nearby? Southern Ala?And was there any other artifacts lying around? Maybe a metal detector would help you out some.
