    Default My first thread - Normandy Relics

    Hi all,

    Somehow I have only just discovered this forum! I am from Stratford UK but I've been living in Normandy for over six years, I go out researching and detecting on the Battlefields every week, I'll be posting some of my photos on here over the next week or so.

    I'd like to hear from anyone in the Stratford on Avon/warwickshire/Evesham/Warwick area who's into detecting on WW2 sites as I may be coming back to the UK soon.

    Cheers,

    Steve

    WOW, this is amazing stuff!!!

    Is the first item ,shown in your hand, a clicker??

    I am very surprised at what you have found...sends chills down my spine.
    I can't imagine the feeling you must get to be the first to hold it since it was left there, under dire circumstances..

    How could you get any closer to turning back the clock?...
