Hi Greg, it's a fragment from a German bomb, picked up by the ARP Warden of No 12 West Pelton Post, after a bombing

raid on Beamish Marshaling Yards and Village Co Durham in 1942. It was with the ARP books I got from his relatives they

said he picked it up the day after the raids and kept it. That's what he told them.

 

It's a nice story if true, I kept it anyway.

Its a thin sheet of foam you can get it from most craft shops. post-3823-0-80302400-1487326289_thumb.jpg

You can get it in a variety of colours.

I would be carefull with foam products which are plastic-based, they could eventually cause tarnish and oxidation due to chemical reaction. Safer are natural materials, wool-felt, cotton or jute. Take a look at the items every now and again to see if there is any reaction to this product. Products from the far east are not subject to scrutiny or health or safety regulations. They will sell us anything and are not renowned for their quality or humane labour conditions.

I understand your concern Paul but I've been using this product for the last ten years or more and never had any of the

problems you have mentioned , the items are just as good as the day I put them into the display cases or frames.
