    Default Along the Saar

    Hello everybody, I would like to show you some pictures of some finds me and my friends did during the last two months in the Saarland in Germany. It isn't quite comparable to the topics I have seen here but for the ones who are interested .

    All the finds are done in the Saar-Moselle triangle. This is one of my particular area's of interest and I have spent many research on the positions and whereabouts.

    This German canteen was a surface find.

    These are pressure plates for US anti-tankmines. The minefield was cleared some time ago.

    But some were dumped nearby after deactivation.

    Also we found two US pineapple grenades which had been emptied a long time ago too.
