I did see one hanging on the railings outside the front door but it wasn't in with the lost property I brought down on Thursday.  Suspect it either got binned or succumbed to the rural idyll and is now living on a smallholding in the upper reaches of Teesdale.

Pip: Sorry but I didn't see your sunglasses when Eskdalemuir closed down. But that doesn't mean they won't turn up at Loughton anyway!

MISSING: GPS, charging cable and phone charger. They were in a small white plastic bag marked with  'EDWIN'. They belong to a volunteer at Thirsk and got put in lost property by mistake (we were all knackered at clean up). It has sentimental value so would love to return it if possible.

LOST:  Etxeondo Kapelu Windstopper Cap, black and white coloured.  Either left it at Alston control or (more likely) it fell out of my pocket on the road to Brampton

LOST: White Giro helmet, left at Thirsk control after I packed on the way back.  I've left a couple of msgs with people that were working there so we'll see if I see it again

FOUND: on Yad Moss, bag of bananas.  Ate one, pocketed one and left the rest

FOUND: on Yad Moss, new and unused Peanut Butter Kit Kat in the middle of the road.  Ate it

That was discovered on an airbed in the sports hall at Thirsk. So many questions.....

Ooh that sounds promising. I may try Danial again once he's had some sleep. When I spoke to him earlier today he didn't think he had any GPS's left. However it may have gone AWOL in the mean time. Thanks for the info.

In any war movie worth its salt, there's always a squaddie playing a plangent tune on a harmonica while his comrades reminisce about their wives and kiddiewinks or The Girl They Left Behind.  Then they go over the top (of Yad Moss) and are all killed utterly to DETH.

LOST - White cotton Campag cap with rainbow bands front to back (somewhere between Louth & Loughton)
Has replacement slightly heavier duty peak stiffener - made from a pale blue plastic which can be seen when item is damp.

Took me ages to dismantle and extract the original broken stifener and sew in a new one, so I'd quite like it back if it should turn up anywhere.

FOUND: pair of black-with-orange-bits Endurance Baa Baa Merino socks which have been chucked into my Edinburgh bag drop.

Further investigation delayed until post-wash.

Found: Snugpak sleeping bag.

Ooops... finally got around to emptying my bags and putting things away. Putting my sleeping bag back into its stuff-sac and discovered I also have its identical twin already in a stuff-sac. So strongly suspect one of my fellow Great Easton volunteers is missing theirs. Have emailed Pat (our control controller) in case they reported it to him but in case you also lurk here, pm me and we'll arrange to get it back to you.

So I'm not the only one who does this sort of thing! I have a very nice Auk cap acquired from El Supremo and the peak stiffener is in four bits. I'm looking for the ideal piece of foam to put in there.
Besides, it wouldn't be audacious if success were guaranteed.
