    And some other things.







    This German messtin lay under the M1 liner helmet and is in remarkably good condition.


    Already posted this one in the battledamaged items topic but it was also a Saarland relic.

    Here are some pictures of the M1 Garand from the first post after it had been cleaned.

    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

    Mate,

    What a fantastic view of the river, I wouldn't mind living there, bonus all the digging too!

    Hello Nick,

    Yes we do use a metal detector but some of the finds were done on the surface, like the German canteen, the German helmet and the 105mm containers. The Garand, M1 liner, 2 Essgeschirrs, US canteen and the hautentgiftunsbottle all came from one pit.

    The area is not empty yet, but we were there half june and the whole forest was just full with bushes and ticks and is was unpleasantly warm.

    Hi Bart


    Thx for the replies. I would love to come with you guys some day. Finding my own German helmet has always been somewhat of a collectors dream of mine. Could you perhaps mail me the maps of the locations you searched. I might take a peek at those spots this summer...
