In my quest to find the missing bits of the cooker, I decided to go through the many tins and boxes of old scrap out in the shed. Finding an old dried milk tin, I gave it a good shake (as you do), and decided it must be full of nuts and bolts. Imagine my surprise when I opened it to find clips of rifle bullets..
The PSNI were duly summoned, and the guy reckoned they were not British bullets, and most probably German. I’m thinking that someone probably had them as a souvenir after the war..
