Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This item has been hanging around my house ever since I dug it up from my garden,I have been trying to find out what it is and what it comes off..

    It is made from cast aluminium,the dimensions are 41/2" x 21/2" x 3/16",it is perfectly flat and as you can see required 5 screws to attach it to what ever it came from.There are no markings on the reverse side and the holes are countersunk to 3/32"....

    I have checked every commercial B.S.A badge (Motor bikes and Vehicles) that I can find dating back to pre WW1,,
    The one section of B.S.A production models I have been unable to check are the ones that were produced for the forces during both world wars,,
    I believe that it comes from a Military Vehicle/Weapon but I am likely to be wrong,,,,Can any Arrser help?
