    Typical... I'm always looking for British Army dumps and all I ever find are Victorian bottle dumps... I'd kill to find a hoard like this!

    Hi Steampunk,
    Dig the bottles and sell them (ebay) then invest the money in WW2 relics, then you're sort of digging the relics yourself.
    Remember there will be military dumps near you, at sites like old Airfields, Army Camps, training areas, POW camps etc the dump sites will be in the same sort of places and show the same clues as the Old Bottle dumps that you've already found. Good Luck with your searches and hopefully meet you on a dig if you decide to join the RRPG crew.
    All the Best

    Looks like you have a bit of to sink your teeth into. It would be nice if one of you were able to put together a complete relic weapon.

    At this rate, I'm sure with a couple more trips, some super glue and some imagination we probably could!

    But, your not wrong. I got lots to do!
