Al Campbell's Bio

Metal Detecting is a very rewarding pastime, but nothing matches the thrill of finding someone's precious or sentimental jewellery and being able to return it when they thought it may have been lost forever.

I have joined the RingFinders network in the hope that I can have the opportunity to do just that.

The successes already, from contacts through the RingFinders website, have been a thrill and a pleasure.

Please check out my blogs.
