Stunning Nuge, looks the bizz. I must get over to the museum and take a look for myself
Phil I think that's a P-51 exhaust pipe.

Thanks fellas
The exhaust stub would be from a P51. Mustangs were based at Halesworth for a while when it was used as an operational training base by the 496th Fighter Training Group in 1945.
