    Default Russians digging near Leningrad

    Hey all, apologies if this has been posted before.

    This is one of the best video's that I've come across on YouTube. Its a gang of Russians digging old German positions around Leningrad.

    Some of their finds are absolutely mind blowing! Hopefully some of you will enjoy this video.

    Kind Regards,
    Woody

    Fascinating stuff but I can't help wondering if the ageing explosives will get them before a trench collapse does. Wasn't impressed with the 'you've seen it on youtube, now buy it on ebay' suggestion at the end of one of the vids. Better than leaving it to rot though.

    Haha, yes their digging was a little wreckless wasn't it!!

    Out of interest, I wonder how many people have been killed whilst digging World War battlefields!

    Hi Woody


    I believe this is one of the SS winter camo helmets that they found, Dimas will be able to tell more about this...

    Talk about back breaking, cold, and muddy work. It's mind boggling the stuff they find buried. But it's almost unconceivable how much stuff they found sitting on top of the ground in that one photo. I guess some of those areas are so remote, there's not enough people around to pick it up. I would think I was dreaming to walk up on that stuff. I'm sure it's all in the research you do before heading out.
