    This is probably the first relics from Vormsi island being posted here, picked these up during my first trip to the island this summer. Nothing out of the ordinary but I just had to have them since I have family history connected to the island. The Soviet belt buckles even comes from the same village as my relatives originally did. The German canteen was found in a hole were wild boars had rooted up soil.

    Thanks for the compliments, I am interested in any potential object that comes from the island with proof. So if anyone has anything from Vormsi, please notify me.

    Yes, I had a talk with them a couple of months ago but they didn't have anything.

    There has not been that much research about the Vormsi battles until recently, when interviews has been done with surviving swedish-estonians from all over the island (99,9% lives in sweden since the war). Something I would like to do in the future would be to return to these places with metaldetector and confirm these battle-places, because stories can easily be shaped in another direction unconsciously after 70+ years.
