    Very nice Panzer Assualt Badge Sebastien ! I'm sure that Feb 2nd is a very important date for all who live
    in Volgagrad. I like your custom of visiting the steppe area where the battle was fought. Although by Feb 2, 1943
    the remaining part of the German Sixth Army was in the city area of Stalingrad ??
    Thanks for a great forum thread.

    Very nice finds there Andrey, keep us updated

    Aside from time problems due to having to work another job, are there more reasons to go out and search in the dark? Do you get into problems with people when you dig? Have you got thrown off a land due to this before?

    ( I am risking the thunderstorms and heavy downpours to explore new areas tomorrow ~ Saturday !! )

    It's true, I have very little free time for expeditions. Now getting dark around 5 pm, and my work finish at around 6-7 pm ...
    And I feel comfortable to be in the steppe in the dark ... I do not care summer or winter)

    Very nice finds Andrey!
    Amazing that these can still be so easily found.
    Scattered about or in a rubbish pit?
