Finds from the Gavray area of Normandie.

Article about: A friend of mine owns a large farm in the area of Gavray in Normandie. He was always telling me that the farm was used by the SS during the retreat. Whilst there he says they had field guns

    Thanx for the pictures Talltom,
    The berthier wouldn't be my weapon of choice, but as long it does the job, why not.

    Cheers,
    Steven

    Oh Happy days !, what is it about digging up, what most of the time is just a pile of rusting/corroding material, that really gets the blood pumping ?
    I spent many hours/days in Normandy through the late 90's early 2000's, detecting in various places and just as in the pictures shown here, dug and found similier items. I can almost smell the soil from your photos Damien.
    I must make the effort next year and take my wife and daughter to visit our friends near Vire and just happen to take my mates detector.
    In those days I didn't have a digi camera, but some where at home, I do have some good photos, plus in the shed a few of my finds from that time.
    Thanks for the pictures.
    Regards Gary
