    That I dug in late November.

    Maybe my photos without interesting finds, but I want to share with you all my travels to the field of battle for Stalingrad.

    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

    WOW!!!
    I understood that the soldiers of KAV.ERS.ABT.11 came in 44 Infantry Division, 100 light-infantry (Jäger) Division and 297 Infantry Division.
    Now I'm digging in the south of Stalingrad, where during the encirclement fought near 371 th and 297 th Infantry Divisions.
    I think in a ravine, where I dig all many units were mixed: the Germans and Romanians.
    Too bad- that throws doubt on my identification LOL Well at least it makes it harder to suggest one of the three best possibilities as most likely- certainly it's reasonable to expect that men were continually moving more and more together and surely there was movement between units, especially like units.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Is this private land you dig on? Any problem with the authorities? And do you have to turn over your finds to someone or just get to keep them? Ron

    Don't worry...
    I rarely dig on private land. When I dig on private land, then I try negotiate with the owner or I dig in night.
    All my finds I leave by myself. Many of my finds I present to the Museum School, school where I studied.

    Thanks for the reply Sebastien. I like the part "or I dig at night". Makes it a little more difficult I guess. Ron
