This is a question Stuff I've found

Freddy Woo writes, "My non-prostitute-killing, lorry driving uncle once came home with a wedding cake. Found it in a layby, scoffed the lot over several weeks."

What's the best thing you've found?

found stuff is often intriguing, and sometimes creep...
In a box that was being thrown away, together with other junk I once found a dozen of un-opened letters to an Italian soldier at the front in WWI.

I opened them and they were from the guy's girlfriend, who in each letter was more and more worried.

I have wondered since what happened... Was he dead? Was he just leaving the letters un-opened bacause he didn't want to hear from her?

They both will be probably dead by now, and their story will remain untold.

That's very creepy..
Then again, if the Bertolli ads are to be believed, a Mediterranian diet gives a good chance of a long life.. so there's a chance that he will have lived to a ripe old age (if he didn't get blown to bits in the trenches.)

There may be relatives who could be tracked down, (assuming they weren't the ones who threw the letters in the bin!)

Who knows?
