    New to you all

    From Brexit Britain

    Joined the forum recently and thought it was about time for an intro.
    I'm a very much retired CPO Royal Navy, served 24 yrs repairing Her Majesties nautical radars,radios and mine-hunting sonars, leaving the service late '81. Current age three score years and 16, still with own hair and teeth !! Happily married for 34yrs - second time around- living in the cider county of North Somerset
    Have been detecting for about 4 years, but,alas, no hoards found as yet. Loads of 18c Georgian coppers in various states of grottiness,several roman coins, equally grotty, from the site of a roman settlement. Plus the usual assortment of pull tabs and bottle tops!
    I realise we are lucky over here, in that our history goes way back BC and some lucky bods find coins and artefacts from that era.
    My armoury is – AT Pro Int, Cscope6MXi, and an Omega 8000
    Hope to join in when I have summat useful to say.
    Finally, my best find to date can be seen here - https://finds.org.uk/database/artefacts/record/id/797260

    Machine of choice is the AT Pro The Cscope as back up. The poor old Omega is languishing in the corner- nowt wrong with it , but it and I cant gell. Will most likely sell it
