Thanks a lot mate
just watched the complete thread , all 10 pages , most interesting stuff that keeps coming up , among it some very special finds ,
Keep on , and keep us informed , it's very exciting !
Here is some of my souvenirs i collected in the bunker complex area, seen in the video. I always keep some items not necessarily of monetary value.
37mm PAK fuse from 1941. It actually have a small eagle with swas.
Some sabot like projectile. If anyone knows precisely what it is, please tell. The tip is made of a very hard alloy.
Handle from RPG-40 in better condition than the pics tell. I found both pieces in the same spot.
Small bottle with two compartments. Second tip is missing. Soviet i believe.
A lever of some kind, possibly from a PAK gun.
Zeltbahn peg and aluminum ring from zeltbahn.
I have no idea what this is, but it looks nice.
German egg hand grenade i deactivated.
What is the diameter of the discarding sabot? Could be for your pak gun?
*wiki* 'Pzgr 40' was tungsten cored ammunition, lighter and with higher muzzle velocity, produced in small quantities.
The circular thing with 3 'legs' I think is a bracket to hold a stickgrenade, to use it for boobytrapping a doorway etc. I could be wrong but it very much reminds me of this. The oil bottle is Soviet for sure, I had a Mosin Nagant rifle and a bottle exactly like this was in the kit with it. Cool man
The sabot is about the same size as the fuse. Could be from a PAK. I have just never seen these before. It could be tungsten.
The " circular thing with 3 legs " is a German shell carrier !! Probably 105mm !!

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
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

Hmm, i thought the "round thing with 3 legs" was a cupholder for a tiger tank,,,
