Don't need one, and it won't be ww2, but the design has remained unchanged, so it is fine for our display, plus it has the top tray that my existing one doesn't....

It managed just 2 hours on that site before I snapped it up for the princely sum of £10. At this rate, we'll soon need a fleet of Jimmys to haul our display to shows!

Haha, i didn't have time to... Spotted it, had BIN price, saw it was in Cambridge and no shipping options, so thought about it for all of 5 seconds before I hit the buy button. My brother is collecting it as he passes by the sellers village often, so no shipping costs either.
Do you need a footlocker?

Ah, I had a 1945 dated field desk that i sold a year or so ago. My brother rescued it from a recycling centre near Ely, for 50p! Folding table? You can get a good repro from Martin Lake up near Newcastle for £90, we have one for our display.

The field desk story does not make me feel better, the words salt and wound come to mind :evil:

Looks like the ground crew need a bit of R & R? :D

There falling out over the fire wood that feeds my pot belly stove in the barracks, sorry field desks now? LoL.

And here's us thinking you used the packing crate wood from all those spareparts we have to requisition. You know, to fix our airplanes after you've bashed them up....

Over. ;)

It wasn't complete and it had water damage, so not the best one i've seen. I can't say i've ever seen one in a period mechanics/hardstand picture and we never looked correct to me, when we had it on our display, so i moved it on, along with a US Army hole punch (oh, you need one of these too?)
We've got more important items to find - bomb trolley, flare nut wrenches, PWA marked items, working platforms, compressor, etc.... My priority is an M-1934, to go next to our original Nissen hut (well, 12' of one!).
