    Nice pics UJ. There is almost always something to find. We found a untouched trench (German) in an area where it should be pretty much impossible. We will go there when the snow is gone. The rain have started here

    To see the mosquito's on your leg reminded me of the less entertaining aspects of digging

    Regards

    Yes, of course there will be more finds in the Hasselmann and Kaprolat battlefield. The only guards there now are the mosquitos!
    Sometimes it is very interesting to investigate non fighting places as for example behind the front recreation bunker villages. Here by the old Luftwaffe airfield in Pääjärvi, Russian north Karelia, May 2008.
    Fighter pilots rested between missions in a special "Fliegerheim" and deep in the vast forests they had a nice Café with a piano and serving finnish "Lottas". Champagne, Cognac bottles and crushed chrystal glasses are spread all around in the moss. The nearby airfield shows a junk yard of mixed Luftwaffe equipment. Diggers find everything from private soldiers and pilots artefacts to unexploaded aircraft bombs
    The grenade tip protection rings from a german 88 mm case is a great beer bottle stand for thursty digger comerades. A midnight swim in the almost frozen lake is really refreshing!

    Looks like that was another good trip Olle , i recognise the Gebirgsjaeger !!!

    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
