Hi all, my first post on this site!
I attach a few photos of some finds made recently in the Normandy area. The frame of shell cases, shrapnel and barbed wire were 'eyes only' finds on Utah beach. If you look hard enough for long enough then it is still there. I displayed the shells against a back drop of sand from Utah beach, the label is still be printed. The next pic of the 50 cal shell case complete with pebbles was found on Omaha beach (the shell was found inside a lump of cercretian (excuse my spelling!!) I decided to leave it as found. It was found after a storm with several other 50 cal cases some exploded and some fired. Any ideas what might of had such a large caliber on the beach? Did any vehicles get destroyed by direct hits? Lastly the photo of relics with the razor were all found in land about 10 miles were a battle occurred actually on D-Day. The razor is patented Canadian and dated 1937. Any ideas what the tin was for? the remains of a tooth pick were found inside? also the piece of wire - any ideas? Would welcome your comments and ideas.
