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?

My wifes wedding ring.
Having been told, whilst on Holiday in Pembroke, not to loose the ring whilst Mrs Mazurka went for a swim, sadly, I failed.

An hour of 8 people scrabbling around sieving sand with bare hands did not find it. In desperation I went to the tourist information place and asked where the nearest metal detector shop was (Swansea). I was about to leave dejected and in the knowledge that I would never be allowed to forget my momentary lapse in competence when the lad in the shop remembered a mate of his might have one. 1/4 later and a stop for new batteries and I was in business.

It was easy to tell where we had looked before but it was not easy to know what settings the metal detector needed. It proved very good at finding the occasional rust nails but not so good with rings. Just at the point when I was about to give up, I gave the knob a twiddle one last time, waved the detector about and lo, the headphones beeped the ring was found.

for what it it is worth Whitesands Bay (Porth Mawr) is an incredibly clean beach.

of which I am a member, offer a free recovery service from the nearest local member who has agreed to provide such. Not me, I'm busy, probably some old retired bloke, should the need ever arise again.

Ah, metal detectors...
Funny, I've just returned from a couple of days at the beach, and revved up my detector in the afternoon. Only found some old coins (1974, 1981, etc vintage, not ancient), but am $15 or so up as a result.

Love it!

I'm pretty sure this was on Wales Today or something?
