Hello All, I have just come back from a great trip to The Hurtgen Forest. From the start it was only meant to be a field trip to learn about the terrain and to hopefully find a few unmolested foxholes, However to our amazement we found some relics just laying on the surface !!
On closer inspection we soon realised that these were indeed a case of one man's rubbish is another man's treasure as these had been lifted from the foxholes and then discarded to one side ! worst of all is that the treasure hunters had carried on digging through the original dimensions of the holes and then covered over some surface archaeology with the spoil. As excited that we were to find these fantastic pieces we were appalled at the blatant disregard to this very important area of historical importance - they had even thrown their food wrappings all over the place !!
