picked up this gem yesterday - the remains of a packing case for the 75 gallon drop tanks for the P-51 - an original item dated 2/22/1944 - likely to be from Bottisham as was local - thanks to Ian Waters for donating it to the Bottisham Airfield Museum

A very unusual find?

Just goes to show what is out there.

Even complete with spelling mistake? (CONNETION - connection?) - wonderful relic!
