    Akolans welcome to the forum. The Kestenga is a far away from Leningrad, to go everyday to dig
    Nice helmet, looks like it's from a SS Nord positions?
    Yes, Kestenga is about 1100 km from Saint-Petersburg. Not for everyday digging
    SS-helmet on the photo is`nt from Kestenga, I have found it in Demjansk region.
    Here is two photos of helmets in Kestenga region...

    Spending the waiste time during the long northern winter, I think
    I`ve seen two svastics in this place, but another stump with the same svastic I casually hurt by foot and have destroyed it

    Here is some photos from this place(the artillery pozition)...
    If somebody have an idea about strange devices made of iron tubes? And the cutting machine... To cut captured partisans

    Anton!

    Great photos of cool finds.

    I have spent much time in the Sevastopol region of Crimea, and was always worried/cautious about unexploded ordinance such as shells, grenades, mines, & etc when exploring places where there was heavy fighting because of such hidden things.

    These grenades, mines, shells, mortar rounds that you show: Are they not "unpredictable" and present a danger?
