    Talking My dug-ups

    Hi guys, here are a few pictures of my relics that i have been digging up in the last months. I have many more findings and pictures, but I will post them later in this tread. All these relics are found in the southern part of the Netherlands Everything that you see in the pictures that is illegal is not in my possession anymore, it was handed out to the local autorities. So i don't have any live rounds, grenades or magazines in my possession
    Have fun!

    WOW!!! You have been a busy guy Lenny.
    Looks like a lot of great items. That Arty round is quite impressive.

    Those mortars and hand grenade would make my butt pucker digging them up!

    Today I found an interesting relic. Its probably an English map bag, because I found plastic with a map in it! On the map are enemy postions and other locations marked. I also found a jupiler beer bottle dated 1940. For the rest some usual finds as you can see.

    Although you say you have handed all live ammo to the Authorities , you actually took a live shell home to photograph it in your kitchen , really ??

    Indeed looks like it could be a smoke but not sure it's inert or if the OP knew that , lets hope he did, it's just not got practice in general !

    More recent finds. All these pictures are my own finds, which I dug up recently in the southern parts of The Netherlands

    Bones are reported to the authorities, but they couldnt be identified, they are probably also mixed with animal bones, found in a shell crater with dumped ww2 stuf.
