    Definitely I can say that in this bunker were soldiers from 94 Infantry Division.
    I think there lived three soldiers. Because we found three bayonet scabbard, yet there were three Bread bag...
    Two helmets, two buckles, one bayonet, one cover of Mess Kit, two gas mask ...

    The condition of those MG ammo boxes is amazing considering they were buried and near a river ! Stunning ~

    Does look line ss runes but seems unusual to mark like that? 44 seems more plausible .. Strange

    Was there anything in them?

    Inside there was nothing. All boxes were empty.
