    There isn't very much history on this place except to say it was once a POW camp. Most of the buildings are empty except for some which are basically full of old farm junk. I was a bit dubious about hanging around this site; I've no idea what an angry farmer might do if he found me there.

    Back to digital. Battery charger, radio direction finder volt meters and god knows what else. The "film reel" might be something to do with the canvas round things...

    Radios in the farm junk.

    From wiki...
    Beryllium oxide is used in many high-performance semiconductor parts for applications such as radio equipment because it has good thermal conductivity while also being a good electrical insulator. BeO is carcinogenic.
