Sunnyjim, your sense of observation astounds me... not much gets past you eh?

Except probably this: (luckily no bayonet required)

Before they left the site they retrieved a metal tag hanging by wire on an engine mount. The Australians reported their find and turned in the tag upon return to base. The tag has yet to be recovered from the maze of Australian and American archives, but the letters and numbers etched upon it were transcribed to a wartime map. The map, used by the same Australian unit, was rediscovered in the early 1990’s and revealed a notation “C/N 1055” and two other distinctive identifiers of Amelia Earhart’s Lockheed Electra Model 10E.
If I'm not mistaken, the map was marked on the extremities. Hardly call for a military court-marshal :-)
