    Default Digs from Germany/France

    Good day,
    It has been a while since I have posted here. All finds are from the first 4 months of 2014. Most are from ex-German military bases that are now US Army bases. I recently discovered and dug a WWII dump pit. It is filled with ceramics bits, glass, medical supplies, coins and other relics. I had to quit once I started to get in the 4 foot depth range. Will continue exploring it in the future. Enjoy

    From the pit: gas mask, canister, spoon (with swastika), wine bottle...need ID for item on the left..maybe a lantern

    Woww! Certainly got the variety of three armies ~ I am impressed ~

    Be cool to be not quite sure which military force/s you about to recover.

    I live in hope that some time ~ soon ~ I will recover a German Afrika Corp, Italian or even Vichy French military souvenir that an Australian has bought back with him ~

    Well ~ I have found Japanese items, in Australia ~ so that's a good start ~

    don't drop those or you will find urine a lot of trouble, maybe just a wee bit though, and im not taking the piss, because those seem rare to find.
