Looking for militaria from 38. Batterie, Heeres Küsten Artillerie Regiment 977, also from 31, 32 and 36. Batterie.
Awesome but dangerous it unexploded devices found.
It may be of interest to members to know that a modern Western NATO miltary unit uses a denazified version of the Anti-Partisan Badge as its insignia. I doubt it is something that is common knowledge.
Last find, IX 1944 , near polish "Valley of Death"
Nice numbered medal hopefully you might be able to trace the original owner !!

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
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
