Other Description:

Each piece had a leading edge that had been doubled back and soldered in order to strengthen the edge. The opposite edge was bent into a lip 5mm deep with one of the adjacent edges also bent back. Where the length of metal had been bent in two the lip had been clipped at 45° to facilitate the seal and inferring the bend was intended. Each piece was is the region of 90mm along its longest length. The length from the soldered edge to the crimped edge was 80mm. Two lengths were bent in the middle but had a total length of approximately 170 -180mm. There were no discernible markings.

Historic Context:

A collection of worked metal plates were recovered. There has been evidence of rework of metal by POWs in other locations about the estate and these items appeared to be of the similiar typology. These items appeared to be made of tin but had a greenish colouration.
