Shrapnel and Rare Books

One of our favourite customers and good friend called in with a box of rare treasure yesterday. Something you don't see every day of the week.

As well as her Identity Card and Ration book from the war period, the box contained some rather deadly looking chunks of shrapnel that she had picked up as a young girl during the Blitz.

Can anybody identify the brassy looking pieces in front of the box? They have the word SAFE written on one piece and there are markings around them indicating perhaps time, or height. We thought Ack Ack?
