Copper alloy badge. Concavo-convex die-stamped badge in the form of a bird with forked tail in flight. The finder kindly suggests the species represented to be a swallow. This reporter considers it might rather be a bluebird; probably made as a trinket to promote Bluebird Toffee, made in the West Midlands 1898-1998, and now part of the Hull-based Needlers group. Now bent into a curl with only scars in the hollow back to indicate the former presence of pin gear, though a thin [diameter 0.7mm] drawn wire pin was loose in the bag. Suggested date: Modern, 1900-1960. Length (as found): 20m…

Copper alloy button. A probably die-stamped slightly concavo-convex discoid plain button front, retaining corroded spurs of a drawn wire loop bedded in a dark tarry fixative; the loop has deteriorated more completely than the button front. The front retains faint traces of an outer circle, possibly framing elements denoting a uniform button.

Lead alloy toy soldier. Solid cast semi-flat figurine, naturalistically modelled at a scale of c.50mm or 1:36, and representing an armed sailor of a Naval landing party running with rifle held aslant and projecting in front of the body [part lost]. The subject is identified by a flat cap with ribbon at the back, a V-shaped arrangement over the collar, and by his flared or bell-bottom trousers. The figure retains an elongated hexagonal base, crisply defined. The manufacturer is probably Continental, possibly German. Suggested date: Modern, 1900-1939. Height: 51.9mm, Width: 28.4mm, Thi…

Copper alloy grenade filler plug. Cast discoid object, flat on one side with a flat basal indentation within a border, and with a rounded ridge occupying most of the other side. These components are commonly the only part of a hand grenade to survive its detonation in recognisable form. This must suggest wartime practice in the use of grenades, perhaps by a local Home Guard unit, or by troops tasked with harbour or coastal defence. Suggested date: Modern, 1939-1945.

Lead and copper alloy bullet. A pointed cylindrical bullet with a copper alloy jacket and a basal aperture through which a lead core is visible, with milled and incised circumferential bands at its midpoint, possibly marking the position of the mouth of a cartridge, and with angled longitudinal lines arising from firing. The diameter may suggest this to have been fired by a 0.5 inch calibre weapon, probably a heavy machine gun as equipped American bombers as part of their defensive armament.

White metal unidentified object. A cast star of eight points with a small sphere at the end of each. Bilateral decoration comprises a central boss surrounded by four lower bosses, and vegetal sprays which occupy the fields afforded by each ray. There is no obvious fixing point, unless the central boss served as the mounting for the object to rotate in the manner of a spur rowel - which this is not, unless, perhaps, a non-functional version from fancy dress. Suggested date: Modern, 1950-1980 Diameter: 41.9mm, Thickness (clear of bosses): 2.5mm, Weight: 9.15gms

Copper alloy wheel. Probably die-stamped drive wheel from a clockwork toy steam engine, with ten spokes of plano-convex section radiating from a broad central thickened hub to a flanged rim, and with a socket for a drive shaft set abutting the hub between two of the spokes. Iron staining on the back suggests the wheel was formerly mounted on a steel axle. Probably modelled at a scale of 1:32 or 54mm. Suggested date: Modern, 1900-1950.

Copper alloy strainer fragment. A segment from a disc of estimated diameter 80mm, with a slight curvature discernible in profile, whether original or as a result of damage remains uncertain. Three closely juxtaposed drilled and countersunk holes and the edges of five more appear. The crisp edges and clean finishing point to a recent date, while the robust construction migfht po0int to this coming from the inlet hose of a water pump rather than from a large watering can.

Lead bullet. A rifle bullet of cylindrical form with a flat base, rounded nose with drilled hole of diameter 2.9mm, and with three fine circumferential grooves; with longitudinal striations from firing.
