    Oh man great stuff. Keep it up while you can as some of these days you will not be able to have easy access to such areas to dig. And that stuff is just rusting away waiting for someone to find it. Not like it will last in the ground for another hundred years probably. So gotta find it now while it is there. The context and detailed info with the finds is really great. Makes it meaningful. Well if you get back to the US I suppose you can dig CW battlefields if you get near any and are on private land. That is about as close to that as you can get here. My MD is just getting dusty setting around here. Not much to find around here and a hassle to get digging permission.

    Hi hows it going

    Thank you for youre interesting article. I too am a very interested in the Hurtgen campaign and have been searching and studying the battle for about 10 years. I am in the British Army and live near the area so normaly get the opportunity to visit 4-5 times per year. I have some very good powerpoint presentations on the battle and some very good books. Have you visited many other battlefields? I have also visited the areas around Geilenkirchen-Operation Clipper invloving joint ops between the British and American forces. I wish you every sucess with youre future visits

    Going back over your photos I see you had lots of fun with bottle caps,flip tops etc. Drives ya nuts! I have a mine detector like your silent partner. Head set, speaker,the works. I just don't know where to get batteries for the darned thing.
