    A friend of mine lives near the area where the wreck of UB122 lays in the mud in the River Medway, Kent...he has a small boat and is able to moor up to the wreck when the tides are suitable, he fishes there.

    Knowing my interest in submarines, he picked these two pieces up out of the hull and sent them to me. A rivet and a piece of metal from the bow area...two nice little souvenirs from a WW1 U boat, I keep them in a small clear plastic box on my tv stand.

    I haven't got of those...they cost too much money to keep!
