    Very nice site, and these guys make good finds here in France. By the look of some they are found on the surface, and some are even pre WWI, but from Napoleon time. I think the finds are made near Verdun. The SRD rum bottle I also find last week near The Somme. I very much like the German body amor, and the elephant helmet plate for the Pickelhaube, that is very rare find.

    Amazing the amount of grenades still lying around, must be worrying if you have children growing up in the area, I know they will be well versed not to touch anything but you know what 10 year olds can be like
    Some people think the grounds should be left alone, but I salute the guys that are taking this stuff away from potential little fingers.

    It is! In Belgium anybody (mostly farmers)who recovers army shells or grenades, puts them along the road, calls police or the army, who sends a special service to pick them up.
    A very wierd sight if you are not aware of thise habit.
    I was last on a German forum, where a guy (who did past such a place on a journey) was complaining about thise. He tought the army shells and grenades where lying there since the end of the war!!!

    "DOVO" is the name of that service , if you search on Google you will find intresting pictures of amazing big bombs!! It is meanly in Flemish, but the pictures speak for them selves.Also try to ad something to the word DOVO ; like "west vlaanderen" or "ontmijningsdienst". Because DOVO is also a football team.....

    If you are not a great linguist try using Google translate:

    Google Translate

    Simply paste the website address into it and "Voila!"

    Translated version of http://humanbonb.free.fr/indexa.html

    Any website into English

    Cheers, Ade.
