    Interesting that the first helmet on the picture found by Gurov was a Heeres, but inscribed with SS volunteers name Kp.r Jansen

    The first buckle was found by Robo in the trench pat in the highest place on the hill, within 3 k 98's, one has a place for a sniper scope, but unfortunately that was a dark time and pictures was a very bad quality. Later we gave the guns to the museum, museum worker has start to clean them later, and use a gas heating (!!!)for opening a bolt, the rifle was loaded and shot was made, the bullet even very close damaged trousers of the guy who helped him, but didn't damage the body...
    Don't play with stuff, even you are a museum worker, the gun which didn't shotin the summer of 1944, shot in the spring of 2010....

    More great work Dimas , just a pity nothing to identify them, amazing that the K98 still fired after all this time in the ground.

    The condition of the MG ammo belt and the oil cans was amazing

    Gurov more excellent excavation work on the bodies my friend

    But we have a chance to recognize the soviets who was found in the previous trip to the hills. The address to whom the soldier wrote the letter, could be recognized from the papers I ve research from his pocket
