    I would say it is already to late for the helmet in image three looks to be lying on a piece of burlap to me or possibly a piece of carpet.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I have seen this before on the family farm Harry when trees grow up around old farm equipment gate posts and old tools.

    Hi Mark,

    I assume Harry meant this thread covering the same story. Good that you posted the pics here.

    Wow, imagine that growing alongside your house. I wonder if that would be legal in the UK.

    not to worry mark i missed this the first time round so great to see amazing mother nature ejecting these right out of the ground ,kind of like how the human body deals with splinters i guess ,i would imagine the root system is doing the very same thing out of sight to these relics too ,i also would think the enormous pressures exerted over time would slowly disintegrate the relic helmets and thinner metal objects ,the one that is most striking is the sapper shovel sticking right out of the tree like somebody just wedged it in there ,the only comparisson i can make to what ive seen is usually trees engulfing there stake ties and barbed fencing wire
