    Hi Fabio,
    any idea where those relics have been found? In Italy?
    If so, I think they probably come from a Beaufighter or a Wellington...

    Cheers

    Hi,
    I saw you found plates on engine Hercules XVI.
    I'm actually working on a ditched Beaufighter in France. I have the number of the manufacturer, and i would like to know where the plates are located on the engine.
    Best regards
