    ID on some Lancaster fragments



    Hello All, thanks for looking in. I'm going to post some photos of fragments found at the crash site of a Lancaster which fell in North Lincolnshire. A group of local people are engaged in raising funds to placed a permanent memorial to the 8 lost crew at the site in time for the 75th anniversary of the loss early next year. A local farmer has brought a bag of fragments and I wonder if anyone could help identify what they are. More pics to follow
    regards to all

              Look very much like Merlin casing fragments with at least one piece of Camshaft.

                Hello Dennis, Thank you for the comments. I thought crankcase / block parts but didn't know if they were painted black on the outside. Do you think that the camshaft is of a size similar to that of a Merlin? I thought that it was a bit small but I have not seen the real thing. I was hoping that someone might recognise the solenoid thing too.

                Thanks for looking in
