    The next day I dug together with friends. We drove in the neighborhood Gumrak. We dug in a ravine near village Gontchary (the village was in the war, now it does not exist).
    We dug a bunker, there lived Romanian soldiers (we think so).
    Our finds: a small shovel, Czech bayonet for Mauser rifles. I also found a grenade M-34

    Not even snow?!? I would have expected permafrost, blizzards and a metre of snow on the ground! I think you should prepare for a hot summer this year.

    The 5th of January was snow and was cold. Winter came!!!
    This work was heavy, wet soil quickly freeze. But I could find some good finds.

    I dug up a tin can. Inside this tin were German ANZ 29 Igniter.
    I think it was German (or Romanian) sapper put down these Igniters in the tin.

    Great stuff and I'm sure there's almost an infinite amount left to recover. Hope you enjoyed the 'global warming' while it lasted. I was kinda wondering what that white stuff was. (just bustin a few chops) Look forward to seeing more of your finds. Ron
