    Quite the haul!

    I would personally be seperating out those rare WW1 .303 chargers.

    It's amazing the amount of gear that used to get dumped, right up until the end of the 1980's.

    My local RAF base ( Kemble) was sold off by the MOD in the 1990's, the clean up required was by all accounts quite the very expensiveheadache!

    Back in the day, no one was concerned by dumping gallons of hydraulic fluid etc onto the base dump along with all manner of time expired aircraft parts.

    I remember 1970's era red arrow Gnat canopies being pulled out of the tip when I worked at the base, during the first stage of the clean up....

    I could see that but I doubt they'll be useable after 70 plus in the ground...refurb and display only...
