    Very nice finds..it is amazing how deep you have to go. Im sure you know this but be careful going in holes..it does not take much dirt to fall on you to make it hard to breath.
    In my job, I have responded to trench cave ins and with dirt up to the chest people can not breath for too long. Great finds..keep the pics coming.
    Yes, I knew it. Several times the ground falled. But not so much to cover me entirely or to brake spinal. So, I was able to get out.

    Mike, I know how looks the RG 33, and I know this construction. I mean the grenades which looks like mortar grenades, but that is not 50 mortar " Poltinnik" re- make...
    As I know, it is Finnish M32 grenade. Indeed, it made from mortar mine, but not "poltinnik", from 47mm trench mortar.

    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Are some of the timbers burned? Looks like maybe a fire was in some areas.
