Here are a few more relics from the same place.
I have not yet decided if I am going start a new big tread about this place.
Rear end of blank firing pipe for MG34 - very rare!
...have enclosed picture of one to the MG42 also.
Also these two k98 bayonets where recovered at the site.
Very nice, looks like you've found yourself a sweet spot there!
I think I will post more pictures in this tread, instead of starting a new tread.
The ammo-box filled with german 7,92 in belt, was actually the second first finding in this area.
Pictures of some of the findings together.
Second ammo-box - medic equipment(plaster scissor, tweezer, field dressing)
Very nice indeed. I wonder what happened to the primers in the 7092 rounds?
Good finds. They cleaned up nice.
Datrus - They used steel primer caps from mid-war onwards. Judging by the corrosion on the rest of the stuff, I would suggest the thin primer caps have just corroded away to nothing.
Primers has popped of, and are laying in the "melted" lead from the bullets...see picture 111011-1 there you can see the primers.
Lead from the bullets are in the bottom of the box - all bullets are hollow now.
