Thank you for the information re. tinder.
It seems it's the same fungus I use to make tinder for fire-lighting, but treated in a different manner. (When charred, it catches and holds a spark very well.)
The soaking in saltpetre would make it much less brittle, ...must try some!
The pictures you have posted show the small pieces of tinder very well, as well as the rope - sized matchcord!
Thank you for these pictures Michael.
