    Hi,
    The crushed aluminium item has the name Marion Hall (I believe) roughly engraved upon it. Some research would be interesting.

    That's right, the item is an US canteen cup.
    I did some research in the past and this is what i found out.
    Thanks to Robert S. Rush, writer of the book "Hell in Hurtgen Forest".

    Marion M Hall, PVT, 35632328, was assigned as areplacement to HHC 1/22on 25 November.
    He was from Rowan Kentucky, and survived the war, infact reenlisting on 11 July 1946 in the MP Corps.
    He was a light truck driver.


    And that is all i found out, i do not know if he is still alive today!

    Last time I was in Hürtgen Wald I saw a fox hole - but the half of it was extended by a very big shell hole. On the top was part of a boot, magazine parts - and part of a jaw with 3 teeths. I did not dig in the hole, but marked it and gave the information + the parts to the nearby cemetary.

    In the part of the wood the US soldiers had some heavy losses. So although there has been a lot of digging in Hürtgen Wald,the area is still so big that there are things to find...
