Some type of siren?
brainbox

Yep . dead right there MOJO. can you say exactly what type of siren , and what this one was used for ?
Barbie

Was it to warn of explosions in the mines, or in quarries or something like that?
brainbox

They may well have been used for that purpose too Barbie, I don't know.

You are very close though with your thought process. This particular one was used for another purpose and undoubtedly saved countless number of lives during the time of its use......Go on , someone must be able to get it now . Wink
MOJO

An air -raid siren!
brainbox

That's it MOJO yes, its an Air Raid Siren as used by the A,R.P. Wardens in WW2.  . I attended an Exhibition of  WW2 items and this was one of the items on show. The fella presenting it actually demonstrated it in action...you should have heard the racket out of it !

..By the way , if anyone fancies one to frighten their narky neighbours then working replicas are available from here......

Very Happy
Barbie

I thought, "Oh, he's asking what it for, so obviously it's not the obvious." So, I thought I'd play clever and I went for the quarry sirens. That will teach me wont it?  Laughing

What's this?
brainbox

ha ! ha ! barbie , I am not that devious... Very Happy

Right on to your one...Err ! at first glance I thought it may be your feet   Laughing  Laughing .
I will have to study it a bit... I will come back to you on this one  Wink
brainbox

Right !  I have had a think on this one and I still think it is your feet , Very Happy
Barbie

I have size 6 feet BB, not size 15.... Laughing  Laughing  Laughing

brainbox

O.K. Ta !  I still think there is a Female connection so I will have to leave it for one of girls to have a look, and they may have  more of an idea...........

In other words..I haven't a blinkin' clue !  
Very Happy
Barbie

I was mucking about with my camera, trying to sort out settings which I'm hopeless at. I managed to take a shot of my lap. My legs look somewhat wider to what they really are though....honest!

I think the pic was hilarious!  Laughing
brainbox

he ! he ! I see it now Barbie,,,,its your knees and Thighs . Very Happy

I have taken loads of off position shots by mistake too,,,,Thats one great feature of Digi cameras isnt it, They can simply be deleted off the Sd card if not required.. Years back you would go mad cos you would have wasted one of your 8 or 16 or whatever.   Laughing
brainbox

I think I may put another one up later.   Laughing  Laughing
Barbie

Shocked
