Even though it was not a crash site, it is still a great story and must have been fun to do.

Congratulations on finding those two Einstellschlüssel as well, they look great after being cleaned up.

So you have tail fins from an SD-70, SC-250, and SC-500, correct?
Probably, I don't know

Here are a pair of B1E incendiarys, though one is an impostor, the upper one is a wartime UK made version, made for ARP etc, training. The lower original one has penciled on the tail 23/2/44, but where if fell is unknown. The British made one has CAR272 EOD INERT stamped on it, it was sold to me as a film prop from the Battle of Britain.

Nice job on identifying that apparatus klarkon.

Thankyou Klarkon for the V1 Gyro links, very interesting.

The gyros came from a house/pub clearance, where the owner (an ex RAF Squadron Leader named Irvine) had gone missing on a yachting holiday in the Med, sometime in the 1980's and was never seen again ! The odd job man/gardener of the pub, was given instructions to clear the outhouse/shed of the pub and kept a few things that Irvine had told him about, the gyros being one of them. He sold the gyros to me, after advertising them in local paper, along with a collection of WW1/WW2 steel helmets, all from the same man. The seller told me that the Squadron Leader, had worked late war, on finding German equipment for evaluation.

Here's my 250kg bomb fin, mounted to give the effect of it dropping into the ground, shown here from a display I put on in Southsea (UK) this summer, for the Normandy Veterans Association get together.
The bomb fin was bought from a house clearance dealer, who found it in a garden in London, being used as a plant pot, he had spent 3x days clearing the house, and walked past it on his way to the house and back to his truck for the three days and it wasn't until he had finished loading his last load that he noticed it for what it was, he tipped the plants and soil out and put it in his and took it away.

Both great pieces, and good stories to go with them too.
