    Look's like Heaven to me where you live.
    I love reading this thread.
    I don't like it eather when I find UXO's, but it reminds me that this isn't a game,
    65 years in the ground or water don't make them less dangerous.

    Superb finds again Inf.

    The water in the picture shows discolouration due to the iron oxide leeching into it. I look for water this colour whenever searching as there is always a relic in it.

    Good luck on your next trip.

    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

    mate i guess some peopel dig to make money and some not, if you dig and sell something it is your bussines and not of someone else, this guy had some great finds and i guess he collects some of this things as well, it is hard work to find places, make research, talk to peopel and so on, so why do you not want him to sell stuff, if you dig and find something you dont want do you not sell it, i think inf div 121 makes all right and you dont have to be angry with him,
    inf div 121 keep it on you do a great job

    Ignore such posts and please keep digging and sharing your excellent work with us. If you can make money doing this, I am happy for you. At least these things don't stay in the ground rotting and being lost forever.
