    Thanks for your nice thoughts. In the 6th and 7th picture are: "colar shields for racial German (Volksdeutsch) units of the Slovakian army'' - quoted from Foreign legions of the Third Reich, vol 3, Slovak buttons and a Slovak cap badge.
    Dog tags are Slovak but such dog tags were used by Austro-Hungarian army in ww1.
    The parts from the plane are German, but I don't know what type the plane is.

    Very interesting, I never knew that the "Volksdeutsche" wore any kind of special insignia! These must be pretty rare, or? Either way, great finds! Looks like a beautiful place with those mountain ranges and all as well.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
