216. The things you can find at an Auction

30/01/2016

Based on a tip off by FaceBook follower Nathan Rusden, Sue put a bid in for this item at a recent auction – and won!

As you can see, it’s a dinner gong, beautifully made from a naval 3.5in cartridge case, and if the inscription is correct, it’s entirely possible Bunnie was called to lunch by it!

The lettering is immaculate, and there’s some proper naval ropework gone into the handle.

    • Me neither. Today I’ve made a stand for it so that it can appear alongside the Scout at public events.
