Woho! Russian army is no picnic, its three years of hell, beatings, torture and maybe active service in dangerous areas. Good for you!
The first photo of autumn 2011. My camera was broken, it's a photo I took on my mobile. Sorry for the quality ...
In September, I had one more trip in the steppe. This is the place where my friend and I found a bayonet and buckle.
On this day, we found a trapezoid from the car door and a different military debris.
The next trip was a month later. In October, I was able to dig again.
The reason - I found a job. I was a surveyor during the construction of of roads. Alas, very badly ... but now I have the experience.
So, I dug up part of the famous Soviet truck GAZ-AA
Excavations have been in the same place ... Near the village Gumrak.
It was October 13.
Well... I worked from 8 am to 7 pm and from Monday to Saturday. so I could not find the time to dig in the daytime.
I could dig only after 7:00 pm, I mean night ...
I dug with my friend next to Gumrak.
We use headlights (made in China ) to look for finds... and we had finds
My first discovery of a medal.
I thought that this Russian medal during a World War II. But I was wrong.
When I got home I found on Google that this medal "good shot" Kingdom of Yugoslavia in 1927. with inscriptions in two languages, in Serbian "Добром стрельцу" and Croatian ĞDOBROM STRELCUğ
In this place was the headquarters of 51 Army Corps, in the corps included 100 Light Infantry Division Wehrmacht. 369 Croatian regiment was part of this division. I think this medal could lose the Croat soldiers.
369th (Croatian) Reinforced Infantry Regiment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
And other finds my friend...
On other days I was walking with my friend in the outskirts the city.
My friend showed me his work. I saw the bunker where my friend dug up 16 German helmets, but in very poor condition...
