    Ww2hoby,
    No reason not to find Dutch or Dutch style helmets (I'm no expert on them) on the Eastern Front, as the Romanians used the same helmet.

    I was actually planning to send you a PM about it, I kind of knew it was him, but there was no idea for me to prove it. How'd you get him this time?(Send a PM if you don't want him to find out how to stay clear of that way).

    Great work! By the way, letters in a bottle were used also in Estonia. A friend of mine told me that similar bottles were found in the yard of a field hospital in Nõmme (Tallinn). So Germans did not used such things only in combat situation.

    I have without joking heard, that Kurland can be a quite dangerous place to dig if you are not welcome there.
