Guys,

Had a wander around today and checked out the locations on the 1943 local map.

We have a real problem with wild pigs where we are but they have their uses it would appear!

@Richard Auld nice to find stuff like that on a walk! I am trying to restore this M24, if you should find a serviceable end piece with the threads for cap, I would be interested, also looking for the head. Thanks

Send me your address, when I find one I will send it, got one last night still round but with a little pitting, even has the tiny nails still. I will post it later see if it passes muster, last night shift tonight!

The 3 circled are not too bad, I think the left one would straighten when fitted and the other two have nails still.

Oh bloody hell AK, if I,d known you were looking for the head and prong base plate, you could have had mine, it was in great condition and with writing around the head, I sold mine at War and Peace last year, got a decent price for it as well, witch surprised me

Thanks @Davejb no worries. It's been a slow restore, I got a nice fuse base from Andy awhile back.

No it is an early Bundswehr Anti tank mine fuse (discharged) DM56 A1 B1.
