Dear Albert Speer, thank you for the thousand rounds of artillery shells, one of which we have here, would it be possible to get a gun to fire them?

The best way to check if the ammo is live is using the dunt test , bang it hard enough on your helmet or bulkhead if your on a ship , to make a loud “ dunt “ noise . If it doesn’t go bang. Likely it is inert and probably just a training round or you did not make a loud enough DUNT you ****. If it goes bang you do not have to worry if the correct paint codes were used or some colour blind person Yop got the paint mixed up .

Colonels letter to the widow telling her that her husband, and 3 friends, all died. It was something they picked up on active duty

One of Sharkey-Ward (snr) air strikes, claimed 4 kills making him a WW2 ace. However photo evidence later drew doubt on his claims
