Article about: ah...Dimas, about the rifle in the tree. By chance did you check the ground around the bottom of the tree? Just wondering if it's owner might still be around.

    Such amazing findings! I would like to go to such places on the Eastern Front once. On this side of Germany you are very lucky to find at least one helmet. The Mauser in the tree is a dream find. A bit cleaning and it could fire again. Thanks for posting this!

    WWI helmets were still issued during WWII because of shortages.

    cut the tree and save the mauser, please
    Leave the tree and enjoy the Mauser as it is!!!

    It's a far more interesting piece as it is, having been propped up against that tree all these years; and by the way the photo shows it upside down, pine branches grow upwards!!
