    Excellent work, that road pointer is fantastic. Nice work getting most of the rust off the top.

    One interesting item from the field of dislocation 71 Infantry Division...
    One digger dug up this metal road pointer (Quartiermeister Abteilung) where I dug.
    Condition is very bad but oxalic acid helped to me.
    Hi Andrey:
    Check out these pictures from a Battalion metal pennant for the 733 Heavy Artillery Battalion. I havent done
    anything to clean it yet, I think I will use Oxalic acid as you did and see if it improves the looks of the sign.

    Hi Sebastien, it took me some time to read all this thread ... but it was very interesting and I can just admit that you did a quite amazing job !

    I'm looking forward to see your future finds, those artifacts of the soldiers lives in one of the most terrible campaigns of the second world war.

    Thanks for all.

    I did some diggin in Bleiburg Austria where the Croatian Army surrendered to the British. They were massacred after being handed over to the communists. Found a lot of shells in a very short time. I hear Slovenia is the place to find Croatian relics as they dumped items as they retreated, and then as they were killed items were lost. However, you need to know where to look.
