Hi all On this trip to a USAAF airbase dump, I split my time between digging dirty great big holes and metal detecting. I have been to this site before and know it can produce some decent finds, but sometimes it can produce naff all! Fortunately, this trip was a 'decent finds' trip, with three of the finds all being from a P51 Mustang. A very exciting dig with lots of shouting, swearing and general slapping of backs. There were ten members of the RRPG on the dig, all of whom found something to make their trip worthwhile. On to the finds. Stuff before cleaning.... And then after.... Flare cartridge bases. Curiously, one of them appears to be unfired. The handle from a US Army issue water canteen. Lots of tubes of this stuff. We hit a little 'seam' of them. But what's it for I hear you ask. Well, a medical condition that was very common in those days, and one that caused quite a few absences from the parade ground. It's used to treat veneral disease!!! Three bits of 50cal cartridges, found whilst detecting around the edge of the dump.
