    It's just i was talking to the Dutch guy Cees who i think you have met and he said he was in Narva in October just after us and he said they found some GS Bodies. He didn't say who he was digging with ??

    I didn't say anything to him about the guys we found.

    That is the soviets and young soviet officer kia being getting the ammo mags or grenades from his "sidor" backpack, you can see his hands holding a backpack, the backpack contains 8 mags for PPS submashine gun and about 6 grenades, and about 200 cartridges, plus soap, shawing tool, and some kind of cream in black tin, finnish cutlery knife with INT 39 markings ( unit most probably was sent back from Finnish battlefield after the Finnland discontinued war . Near him was found mess kit inscribed with name and date of birth 1926 year, unfortunately no other papers or medals found, which will help indentify them.
