    Please forgive me....I am so new to fossil hunting I have only been twice. The second time I met a couple of really nice gents from UKAFH who were really friendly and helped me overcome some issues I had. Like I didn't want to be destroying a classic find for someone else and even gave me a couple of the fossils they had found. Wish everyone was as nice.

    Anyway I found what I think are probably juvenile belemnites but just wanted to make sure. Your input would be gratefully received.

    Kindest regards

    thanks Craig,

    I have quite a few larger ones and have polished them up. Didn't know to put something next this one for size before I gave it to a friend.....it is about 12cm long. I have a couple more large ones to do. The ones I posted though flummoxed me a little as they were so small and the top one is tapered both ends. It is great having a forum that I can ask and I love reading through some of the older posts and seeing what others have done.

    Kind regards

    Duncan
