    Default Wreckage, poss from a Lancaster, found in Germany, what is it ?

    I have several photos recently sent to me by a contact in Germany, he asks if I can ID the aircraft parts which he has found in a field. Is there any simple way that I can attach some photos here so that somebody with greater knowledge than me can hopefully identify them ?
    thanks PeteS

    Upload the images on imgur.com, copy from 'share links' for BBCode (Forums) and paste the link on the thread.

    Is there no simpler way - for somebody who is seriously non-computer technology inclined ?

    Hi Pete, if you have problem uploading them to our galleries you can send them to me and I can make a try. Or you can put them on your web and put direct links here.

    Pete.
    1. go to https://www.flickr.com/ and just sign up to a free account.
    2. go to the 'upload' link at the top, and find the photos from your computer you want to upload to YOUR album on flikr.
    3. Once uploaded, you can name, leave it as is etc, open each of your photos, one at a time, see at bottom of page the 'share photo' link (looks like an arrow) , click on it, it generates a web address, which when you click on it becomes blue/highlighted, right click on the address to 'copy' the address.
    4. When you are posting your message on the forum, in the 'reply' box, the symbol above, that is for 'insert image' , click it and 'paste' the web address you copied, then 'ok'. Your image will viewed by anyone clicking on the link. Repeat for each of the pictures. Its the simplest way, you will get the hang of it.

    This is how I show images to my fellow forum users.

    Pavel,
    those photo links open as small thumbnail size, but if you go into the 'image galleries' they open as full page. Something not right there ? Suggest anyone veiwing go into the 'galleries' . To the subject. I have compared those relics to photos of the Lancaster interior, and they don't match anything in the cockpit, flight engineers panel, or wireless operators panel, yet. If found in a field, they are not necessarily from a Lanc, many possibilities...

    I think I have used the correct link - small thumbnail size in the post and when clicked on them I got full size photo opened in new separate tab.
    I am using Firefox 77.0.1. Which browser do you use?

    Looks similar to a Hydraulic (or similar system) Blanking Cap.



    It even has a similar part number to this item here.

    I would associate this type of Blanking Cap with a USA Aircraft or perhaps some later British Aircraft.

    Edit -
    In fact on Ebay.com we have the exact part number...
