    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...

    You remember, my friend dug up a bunker in the steel safe with documents, Wound badge...
    My friend made​a picture of burnt paper. This proves that in this bunker were soldiers of 517 Regiment, 295 Infantry Division.
