    October 2005, metal detecting behind our house I found a waste pit from the field hospital, a complete set of T5 Harness buckles came up, para cord, pieces of camo parachute, a cricket and a lot US forks & spoons, ration tins, tooth brushes, razors and medical bottles.

    Even enlisted the wife to help dig, the items were no more than 2ft down in very sandy soil.
