The Spitfire Penny
« on: May 23, 2018, 18:19 »

 
Raising money to build a Spitfire.  Fashioning one out of a pre-decimal penny, plus a detectorist find. The muse can lead you into strange places.

A little off topic but the certificate is in a similar vein.
Also i have a feeling that one of the spitfire badges were found in the Thames and shown on London Mudlark page. Laura’s book should be out soon and i will remind her of your offer to review it. Interesting to see what she wrote about me :)

Great story. I love trench art. It’s amazing the talent and resourcefulness off the soldiers. Wouldn’t mind having a go at making a spitfire myself if a can figure it out.
