Iím new to the forum, and so far posted some medals in the German forum. I have been visiting a lot of battle fields in the past, just to be there, feel the atmosphere, see the paces, but never actually went searching for relics. (Of course you always hope to find something). I picked up some things at the Somme, but this is not very difficult, itís lying on the surface. But even the smallest finds make you wonder what's the story behind it, and what happened to the men who belonged it to.
This weekend I have some spare time, and Iím going to the Ardennes, in the surrounding of la Gleize, (I could also stop at HŁrtgen forest) And I would like to find something, or start searching. Iím going to do some research where to look, marching trails, troop movements. Is it even possible to find anything without a metal detector? I red some threads and understand itís forbidden to search with a metal detector.
Any tips on how to act are very welcome,
Best Regards Menno
