    A Flanders farmer has recovered so many WWI relics from beneath his soil that he has set up a museum to showcase rifles, helmets and unexploded artillery shells.

    Very interesting. Do you have any idea where the museum is as i'm heading over there in the morning and would be interested in visiting?

    Indeed.
    Too bad, that we didnt get to see more of the MG (looked like it still had an ammo belt attached!) and other relics.
    I hope no other visitors are allowed near the live ordnance!!
    Not the thing to have on display.
    But then it did sound, like it was waiting to be destroyed.
