    RAF Bomb Detonator Crate - 1938

    I bought this box yesterday in France. I assume that from the dates on it, made 1938 and filled 1939 this was left behind by one of the Fairy Battle or Blenheim squadrons that had such a hard time in France in 1940.

    Condition is remarkably good with all original paint. I certainly seems to have been looked after.

    If anyone has photo of the detonators I'd be interested to see it.

    is there number stamped into the bottom?
    "Any live or recovered ordnance in my posts has been dealt with by trained EOD personnel"

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
    Barbeques on fire by the chalets past the castle headland
    I watched the gift shops glitter in the darkness off the Newborough gate
    All these moments will be lost in time, like icecream on the beach
    Time for tea.
