Guy in yellow jacket was Ian, he got a good few Enfield's and was kind enough to give us one. Collection is coming along nicely, only I never found them  :D
Well done Bruno, that's some haul. You were too far away and I was a big fearty
Great photos Crepitis and it was lovely to meet you.

I enjoyed chatting to you and Paul  :)  , maybe next time you will get down to the bullet zone and in among the finds  ;)

Ach, I wish I'd known that; a couple of years back I went detecting on the foreshore, but I went just by the castle, where that old map shows a timber yard. No wonder all I found were nuts and bolts!

Never on a shoreline, there'll be tons of lead bullets there still. Wouldnt mind going down again, but a wee bit busy for he next couple of weeks, be good if we could organise a few of us to nip down at the same time, be a good laugh, just remember to bring a spare bag for all the bullets or they'll weigh you down into the mud or they'll pull yer breeks doon and that's never a good thing!  ;D
