A day with Tim Heath on his MASH Site.
email. I get to sit on a sand bag and swing the hurricane lamp with all
sorts of people from all over the globe. This is exactly how I came to
I got an email from Tim asking for a trade against a WW II shell I had on offer. One mail led to another and he told me about this site of an Mobile Army Surgical Hospital MASH which he had been excavating. He went on to say that he had only ever dug small areas and searched eyes only and would I like to come and have a look over with my detector?. I think my answer was some thing like "does a one legged duck swim in circles"
Hard to imagine that this was once a full size hospital made up of tents.
|When I arrived on site I lent Tim my back
up machine. He was a little reluctant at first, but after Showed him
how to use this simple twist and go machine he was a lot happier.
He soon made short work in making the first find of the day a WW II American Dog Tag that had not been stamped.
|I was very surprised to see the pieces just coming to light with each turn of the spade.|
Here are just a few of Tim's finds he has had over the years
