    As well a little finds all these things at the beginning of the 20th century ...
    That's all. The chief engineer gave me only three days, so I could explore there ... I am very grateful that I had the opportunity ... very sorry that the finds in such a bad condition

    Wow you found an icon of Saint John the Baptist. As a Christian Orthodox I would be very happy to find something as holy as this.
    Looking for the photo albums of Leutnant Emil Freitag, 3. / G.R. 377

    I am very glad that you marked these finds. This is not relevant to the Battle of Stalingrad, but it's the story of this city ...

    In the big scheme of things, I understand why you'd state, that you dont find them 'interesting.'
    How ever, I find those relics found there some very poignant relics indeed.
    Food for thought. Some how the MG paraphernalia and spent ammo brings the bitter fighting on the that all important hill (to both sides) home.

    I read through Sebastians last few post and commented on the below quoted post. As I was formulating my comment, you posted your above post. I wasnt commenting or disagreeing with anything you said; an MG and/helmet would be 'nice' (to say the least)

    I find it fascinating, that Sebastian is able to live and breathe history where he lives and find his posts super interesting.
    At the same time, I fully understand why he would like to find more than spent ammo (though I find a position surrounded by the MG relics very interesting myself).

    Yesterday night ... Mamaev Hill ...

    I found the position of the German machine gunner ...

    Nothing interesting, only shells ... hundreds of shells...

    No problem. All is good. A small misunderstanding due to me not elaborating and due to you not being a mind reader
