Gone but not forgotten

By Mike Greatbatch

 

About 4 or 5 years ago my detecting partner, Eric gave me a bucket of metal detecting scrap/treasure to look through just in case there was anything in there I might be interested in keeping.  I parked it in my garage and forgot all about it.  Sadly, Eric passed away nearly three years ago and recently while sorting out some things in my garage I came across this bucket and decided to look through it. As I had thought, most of it was crap but then, when I got to the bottom there was what looked like a brass ring. I decided to clean it up a bit and when I did, I discovered it was in fact a small gold ring!

Not only was it a gold ring but inside I could see an inscription. Holding the ring up to the light I read the inscription “REMEMBER YOUR FREIND“ – spooky! (It is misspelt)
