    Hi everyone!
    Today, I testing my shoes . It works is well!
    Finds little!
    German MP 40 SMG Mag Loader and detail of the rifle Mosin-Nagant and tag on the box.
    yes, the bottom item in the bottom picture appears to be the scope mount for a Soviet PEM mosin sniper rifle. (from page 41 of this thread). It is missing the top half of the rings at both ends of course. I don't see any of the other pieces in your pile.


    Above the scope mount is the magazine catch from the bottom of a mosin as well.

    Oh, sorry Steve. I thought that it is not important for members. Thank, that you reminded about it.

    From page 43, next to the MP40 loader is a soviet M91/30 magazine floorplate. Milled version of course, but this doesn't help as stamped were made only rarely.

    A real nice piece Sebastien. Amazing it stayed in as well as it did and didn't just get scrunched up! The marking on it looks great! Thanks for the reply. Ron

    (Army time coming up....nervous yet?)

    My finds: Two large shells for the German howitzer 15 cm sFH 18; German ammo pouch in a bad condition, two gun ramrod of a rifle Mosin-Nagant.

    Yet on the field, near the hole other Rus diggers, I found a shell .
    Bad guys dug up this staff and thrown away. This is very dangerous! I have not touched this shell.
    If you have a diagram of the shell then show me
    Hi Sebastien,

    That "button" marked M.A.N. S.S. VAR CLOROS is Romanian. "VAR CLOROS" means CHLORIC LIME.
    Was it part of a bigger item or just lying around by itself?

    Rgds,

    Dan

    Hello everyone!
    I've been busy. I wrote project of the village water supply (I am studying an engineer), 120 pages of text and 10 drawings - it was not easy.
    After 10 days I will present my project.

    Today, I relax. I was a little digging.
    I worked on the position of German engineers (Festungs-Pionier-Abschnitts-Gruppe II/16), next to Gorodische...

    I found not more: Frag wrapper (shards to destroy the people) for a grenade RGD-33 and Parallelepipeds it was explosive .
    This is not a good find (Parallelepipeds), I buried it back.

    See you later

    Just amazing to see all that is discarded. lost, used, etc... in the field. Eventhough I was in the military, I never gave it much thought.

    Thanks for sharing,
