    Unfortunately all items found with bodies is totally destroyed by a rust ( very agressive soil after the body is rotten)

    That close to our previous finds, only 70 cm away !!! How did we miss them before , must have been a full trench system there not just MG 42 and mortar pits !!

    So that's 9 altogether ? Did Gurov manage to excavate them ok ?

    regards

    More MG 42 gunners , what is really interesting is that all the tags are from different units , not one the same so far !!

    I'll have to consult my maps further to try and work out which unit was there as they may not be Norwegians as we thought after the first tag !!

    regards
