Had a few days at my Bro's in Nottingham...just back this afternoon actually, and had no idea how good the junk/charity shops are down there...:)

 

A WW2 No 3 Pattern FS Knife, in outstanding almost unused condition with the No 1 stamp on the handle...lots of little additions to my collection, books, signed and unsigned , badges etc etc...

 

A WW1 No 35 Rifle/rod Grenade in fantastic condition..still retaining some of its Buff paint...

 

Also had a great day at Newark Aviation Museum...:)

 

I found some amazing stuff in the unlikeliest of places...pics below.....:)

Like the rifle grenade, don't suppose there is anything in the night fighter book about ops in Jan 44, perhaps shooting down my plane here in Germany. I think it is in the relics section.
