    RAF Millom museum

    Hi Chaps,
    As part of my weekend missions away this weekend,i found time to visit the RAF Millom museum.
    Its a split site,one full of these nice artifacts and across town full of aircraft cockpits and engines amongst other big stuff.
    I had to do a whistle stop tour as my other pals would not pay the 5 entrance fee which i thought was reasonable.

    A few nice fuze bits on display ranging from IB's to this nice 28A fuze.
    It was donated by a local BD man years ago and to me fits the scene well as m sure this fuze was used as delay-action for anti-shipping use?
    Barrow-in -Furness docks sounded the likely target then?

    cheers

    more pics featuring one of my mate trying to impress his g/f!!
    Tornado Cockpit,and the engines from an A-26 Invader that crashed in the marshes near Preston during the war.It was featured in a Time-Team Special a couple of years ago? Actually,i think it was a pair of them that collided?

    Big guns too!

    I think the guy said the first one was a Canadian 20mm.
    Cant remember the make of the barrells? Deffo not Hispano.

    40mm Bofors and a 25 pdr?

    hope you enjoyed the show?

    cheers
