Just arrived from a river in Normandy a P47 blast tube.

Part numbers are 100% correct.

Just a bit beaten up due to interaction with terra firma.

 

N.B. confirmed that it is not considered a weapon under current guidelines.

Very nice! The Yanks were very free with their stainless steel. Some bits of WW2 aircraft will last for ever.

Thanks chaps !

Ian compared to the P51 blast tube you found at Llandow the metal in this P47  is thinner but considerably longer at ca. 36 inches long
