Battledamaged beautiful finds

Article about: They obviously never knew what hit 'em. But it is sobering to realize that indiviuals died wearing those lids... heads turned to strawberry jam.

    I don't know, many of 'battle damage' was made after war, children play or hunter's or first diggers'.

    Good thought ~

    I was discussing similar issue after seeing German helmet advertised on Fleabay ~ and my Netherlands connection commented that many of the 'local' battle damaged helmets were the result of Allied forces using German war graves and the Helmets as a target (practice) !

    Awesome finds! I have a few Russian and German battle damaged helmets from Estonia and nothing beats the feeling of holding a battlefield relic item! Just so much character to them. Amazing pieces Cheers!

    Oh Thanks mate ~

    You have just reminded me of the very ~ exceptional~ rare ~ almost impossible oddds find of a German WWII canteen cup ~ which I dug in Australia last year ~

    And all others were emphatic that it was a nothingness ~ modern rubbish~

    Even with what turned out to be the standard Wehrmacht blue colour ~

    It was not till some 3 weeks later that I discovered courtesy of this web site~ exactly what I had found ~ a German WWII Wehrmacht relic. most likely returned to Australia by an AIF Digger after serving in North Africa ~

    It was taken away and placed in a recycling bin behind my back !!

    Yes, a deceased RK winner................ In all seriousness, found on the field of battle, without the suspension ring nor the ribbon, which were added later.

    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

    Some finds from Estonia Auvere/Sirgala region.
    I havenīt figured out what was use of this rod in first pic. if someone knows let me know.
    The rod is one of several ones used, as a part of antenna for a german military radio (receiver/transmitter)

    Beautiful items, they really tell a story, I especially like your buckles Dimas. Here my SdKfz 251 wheel with battle damage.
    Nice, except if course it is probably from an Sdkfz 250, not 251. Wrong arrangement of holes & bolt fixings.
