    I will see him (Robocop) tomorrow, tomorrow we'll go to the Narva.

    Here,s the last pics of that battlefield relics.

    This alluminium plate is from the tank crew burial. Of course we didn't dig the grave, we just buy this thing from one guy and save this thing from recycling. Otherwise he found it near the mines (limestone) area so i think that the grave alredy destroyed by the miners. It,s typical burial that sometime possible to find (strictly after the war of course) in the forest or in the battlefield. The plate is alluminium (part from the plane may be or from the machine gun dox), I think it was on the wooden stick on the burial.
    The inscription - Here buried tank crew (2 persons) leutenant Fjodorov Aleksandr Nikolaevich was born in 1922 and sergant Safronov Aleksei Spiridonovich, was born in 1917. Dead in the battle in 1.03.44 for the Soviet Russia.

    Thanks.
    Here's some more pics.

    Very interesting mess kit, finish, with the finish name "Veiko Karkalainen". It was a soldier from "Nordland division" or soviet soldier wth the trophey from finish front.

    On the last two pics, there's a cups from mess-tins, which usually found on the positions of estonian volunteers. One type i know it's an italian, which was used on the Estonian Army before the summer 1940, you can read the last name of estonian soldier on the close up picture. "P.Laavik".
    I have two questions: why the italian mess-tins hase two sizes and a sekond question is what the type of another mess-tin, (on the last two pics.)i mean the country of production. I think it's hungary, but may be not, who knows.??

    I know that it's finish i,m asking about another one with no handle, on the last pics.

    Hi Paul, yeah, right this place it's a garden of Robocop and one of those helmets actually your now, i forget about this. Last find of him (week ago, that i heard) was the polizai buckle but it was steal (rusty).

    Raymond, I think that in one day Robocop should to start write an inscription on his helmets, "founded by Robocop" just for fun
    Robocop becoming a famous
