    Hi Lukk difficult to say in this condition , was it found in a known Battle area ?
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    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

    Hi!

    I found it from my grandmothers birthplace near Tallinn, about 10 kilometers from the city. There hasn't been any certain battles, but both Soviet and German soldiers had stayed there during the war.

    Looks like's whats left of a ammunition-trailer for the 12cm German mortar, but the wheels are not, those where the same as those from the PAK 3,7cm.

    Gday,
    The wheels look agricultural to me.Like what you find on old farming equipment.
    The frame work and running gear is of a very simple design,Notice the draw bar is welded directly to the rigid axle with a simple flattened pipe join.
    Looks home made from these images.What do the welds look like on the bed?(if they are welded)
    All the best
