My latest groundfinds

Article about: All the shells found look to me like 75mm ww1 french shrapnel shells. The 'fatter' cartridge is from a French Lebel, and the others appear to be 7.92mm German K98 cartidges. Nice lot there!

    Hi Squadra 33,

    Just a thought, but these old shells you found are empty of explosives I take it

    If not, or your not sure, please don't try and dismantle or clean them. Even items nearly a 100 years old still explode and kill people. I don't want to scare you, but thought someone should mention it

    Take care,

    Grant

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
