Wonderful photos! I love the 'then' and 'now' comparison.

Okay, I think I should continue to publish photos from place of excavation
After a visited to the recruiting office (July 8), I went to see a friend in the village of Gorodische. You remember, my friend dug up a large German bunker, with burnt-out documents and safe.
We talked with him and agreed to dig at the ravine together.
After meeting with a friend, I dug a little at the ravine near Gumrak...
I dug up cover for a small shovel. That's all.

So, the next morning 5 am, we came to position 517 Infantry Regiment, a ravine near the village Gumrak.
We dug a few hours. Now very hot like last year. 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius). At noon outside it's terrible!
I was digging near a large bunker. I think there was a cart or bike, because I found the different parts.
My friend found a silver madonna pendant...
One heck of a sunset Sebastien!!!!! Good eye. Ron
So, I returned to the ravine near the village Gumrak. You can see town from there...
The last time I dug up a small bag for a shovel. On this day, I dug up this little shovel in bad condition . I also found a piece of the sheath sabre Soviet Shashka
You remember, my friend dug up a bunker in the steel safe with documents, Wound badge...
My friend madea picture of burnt paper. This proves that in this bunker were soldiers of 517 Regiment, 295 Infantry Division.
