Night of the 88

My entry for this week's challenge. I didn't want to do a Christmas ornament, and beyond that there are only two in our house. This is one. It is a fragment of an hydraulic pipe that was severed by a tracer bullet during an altercation with Junkers 88 over Germany in 1943. The pipe comes from my father's Wellington bomber. He was recommended for a DFC, but black balled by his Wing Commander as he was a rather subordinate individual at the best of times. He later rose to the rank of Wing Commander himself.
