    Hi guys.
    Today I repaired the car at my friend's garage, in Gorodisсhe. After I dug a little in a ravine near the village. Here I dug up an unknown object ...
    May be you know what is a garbage ...?
    On the surface there is a stamp BAL 1256
    Google helped me

    The acronym 'BAL' is also a stamp I frequently find on German aircraft electrical equipment. It looks like some kind of quality control or 'passed inspection' stamp.
    "Bau Aufsicht Luftwaffe"

    may be anybody know more?...

    I think it may be bomb release gear from a Luftwaffe aircraft. Cannot prove it though!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    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

    Celebrate, find something that will really surprise us,,, Although I imagine digging through a meter or so of frozen ground wont be easy!

    No, I did not go to the Parades. I do not like it. Government of RF is tax money laundering = my, my mom...
    I walk around the city sometimes think that the war ended yesteryear ... very poor state of roads and all around ... I feel ashamed ...

    But it's the lyrics ...

    Traditionally, February 2 I went to dig...
