on my Hamilton Lane allotment, I have found the odd coin or two, nothing exciting, many pieces of white, broken pipe stems, all sizes of smooth, Budleigh Salterton beach-type pebbles and, despite the constant war we all have against them, I still find loads of blackfly, slugs and snails each year.

I once found a doll's house-size white milk jug which the Antiques Roadshow at The Pavilion assured me was worth absolutely nothing.

My latest find is a racing pigeon ring. I have no idea how long it has been in the ground so the colour description may be wrong: sky-blue. The numbers are: 86169 NU 75V. I do not doubt all that means something to you racing pigeon enthusiasts, but can one of you please explain it to the rest of us? I also have a feeling that some of the numerous bones I have found may have belonged to that pigeon.

John T Y Clapp,

57 Littleham Road, Exmouth.
