I had the opportunity to contribute something to the @canadianwarplaneheritagemuseum over the past winter.
A friend of mine asked if I would assist by inspecting the 303 Brit ammo that is displayed in the guns of the Lancaster bomber to ensure it was safe and legal. For those that don't know, there were about 7400 WW2 Lancaster bombers made. The one that lives in museum in Hamilton Ontario is one of only TWO in the entire world that are still airworthy!
We pulled all the bullets out of the cases, ensured there was no powder in them, and then ran each case through a Lee-Enfield rifle to discharge the primer. The bullets were then re-seated and crimped into the brass. A small hole was then drilled into the side of each brass case to provide a visual indicator that the round was a dummy round.
It was an interesting, and a once-in-a-lifetime project for me. It was a pleasure to be able to be a small part of a much bigger project.
Special thanks go out to my friend Howard for involving me in the project. Thanks as well to @tacticalhero69 and @michel_4045_sawmilling for hanging out and drinking coffee while the work was getting done. 😉

Got all of Liam’s Christmas presents in one shot today at a huge toy sale at the @canadianwarplaneheritagemuseum! Saw some pretty cool planes too! We will have to go back when Liam is a little older and knows what he’s looking at. ✈️#canadianwarplanemuseum#toysale#christmasshopping#done !
