    Default digging along the WW1 Italian front line

    Hi folks,

    I am kinda new to this forum even if I have previously visited it from now to then in the past. I am Italian and live between Italy and Sweden. (Ni svenskar, normenn og danske som läser snälla hör av er )
    Been digging for 20 odd years, purely for passion and desire to share with others what´s left of that cruel war between 1915 and 1918 along the front line in Northern Italy. I am not a grave-digger, I do not do it for business or money what so ever, what drives me is real passion for history and mountainering and needless to say deep respect for the fallen ones.

    Preferred stuff? well, definately rubbish pits and personal belongings of any kind, mostly K.u.k. army, Kappenabzeichen amongst other things.
    Mind you, searching for ww1 relics in Italy is not the likes of digging for ww2 in Russia or in the Baltic, but hey we just have so much fun anyway even if finding good spots is getting so much harder every time we are out there

    Any question, query o request pls send an mp.

    Hope you enjoy some pics of quite good digging trips of the past 3 years or so.

    Best Regards to everyone from Stockholm,

    Gian
