    Hi,

    I do also have an relic Eddystone M1917 found in France.
    ...it was part of an ww2 militaria exchange.
    Story was, that it was found at Omaha beach in Normandy over 30 years ago.

    The rifle is stamped.
    U.S.
    MODEL OF 1917
    EDDYSTONE
    612572

    Don't know if the story is true, but I got it almost for free - so I took it.

    Together with a Remington stock, I think it looks okay for display.
    ...and a bayonet of course.

    Just to show you another relic M1917 - not to hijack this nice tread.

    Regards

    Finding stuff in water can be ideal under the right circumstances. Although not from WW1 or the western front, please find enclosed two finds from one of my latvian expeditions. The sidearm was actually leaning against a tree (!) and I came across the SMG in a river. In very good nick, considering.
