    About a month ago I was out with the camera searching for some remains of a german gun emplacement. Batterie L÷dingen outside Bod° was armed with 4 15,5 cm field guns. Only one of the gun positions remains today. There is supposed to be a small underground complex around this emplacement but I couldnt find it.Maybe next time

    Good to see an authentic relic warrior hunting down history versus that dude on pawn stars with the man purse who has most likely never got his nails dirty.

    Semper Fi my collecting brother!!! Happy digging!

    LOL

    Yes Inka ~ And here Down under we are now experiencing high temperatures and a burning Sun ~ I got fired last Weds when we went out ~ We left the "camp site" very early and I neglected to put on a decent hat or Sun burn creme ~ and even worse the insect Repellent !

    Got Sun burnt ~ wind burnt and march flie/s bite me on the face and the hand ~ both bites came up a little nasty after ~

    But we had a great relic hunt so very little was lost ~ At least when the "Wet" arrives it will break the heat ~ and raise the humidity of course ~ but much improved~

    But in short we can hunt 52 weeks a year ~ and as we said to "Ed's " wife Sue ~ we have Too many WWII sites that need our attention ~
