    How do you clean your items? Medals, paper, heavy rusted items, uniform bits etc etc
    Hello Vegar,
    Every item I clean different ways.
    The main way: my hands and water
    Sometimes I use different acids (oxalic acid, phosphoric acid, acetic acid, citric acid, Trilon-B = Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid disodium salt).
    I can not tell you everything, maybe I need to open a a new big topic. But I have not time and I have not good knowledge of English.

    In this day my ex-supervisor (lecturer at the university) asked me to take him to a pond near the village Rossoshka. He needed water level measurement.
    I took my friend's metal detector and when my ex-supervisor was busy I was looking for war relics ...

    I was looking for in a large ravine ...
    The first I found part of an artillery box.
    Then I found an interesting next clearing, there were many different military items ...
    Was very hot, afternoon air temperature was around 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit)... :

    What are the dozen or so shell case artifacts? Are they trench-made ashtrays or something else? What do you do with these things after you uncover them? Do you sell things? Also...I know it's hot and all,but...just out of curiosity...wouldn't a pair of light material shorts be abit more practical to wear while searching? lol William

    When I dig I am motivated by years of experience. In hot weather, being naked is quite cold and a good tan ...

    Put it this way...If you were to see him, would you approach to ask what he's up to? No....Me neither!

    Although the thought of picking up deer ticks or the like on your crown jewels is frankly,plain terrifying!!

    Itchy now, Ned.
