the most random item found in a hull!!

#1
what is the most random item you have found in the hull of a wagon you have just lifted the pack out of.

on my most recent trip to poland. i lifted the pack of a chally and the usual "baggsy the ratchet" "that 19mm's mine" could be heard, but then a call of "well im having the potato" was shouted!!!!! and yes there it was A POTATO!! now i thought that was pretty random, anyone got anything better.

I once lost my glasses while working on Chieftain ARRV, retrieved them with a long stick and a big gob of grease luckily enough, I can see the OC being well impressed if i'd asked to lift the pack to fish em out

A pistol harry blacked to the botom of a K60 about 2 years after the Gulf.
Someone had stuck it there to bring it back for a wall and forgot it was there or got scared off.

Once found a full packet of that danish ham you used to get in the NAAFI, under a b81 pack(432 mk 1), thing is it was mega swollen as it had been in the warm sludge for god knows how long, all green and yellow puss type stuff, as squaddies do we stamped on it, cleared the wksp for ages! How popular we were, not.

A DMS boot in the well of a Chiefy - ich scheissen sie nicht! the sole was hanging on by a thread, all swollen up due to its submersion in diesel for god knows how long.

This is gonna be hard to swallow I know, but

we once found an L60 in a hull that actually worked........properly.......for more than 20 k's

Found a starter motor that worked perfectly after changing it in a 43. Remember showing the new sparky the trick with a split pin on the gear selector cable...........just before inserting it. He never sat down for the rest of the scheme.

A crew that stayed with the wagon. and actually helped.

The most useless thing I ever found was an infantry crewman.

When you ask for crew to service the wagon, you always get the ones that aren't going to trouble the world of 'Rocket Science'.

The best thing I ever found was a toffee hammer. Small but perfectly preserved in one of the wells of a 432. I will sign off if I lose it.

(same with my boot brushes- these are the items I can't live without- idea for a thread here if you can be arsed!!!)
