    I believe they came out of a naval stores somewhere on the coast , Canadians fought their way into Germany along the northern part of the front , through Holland etc . Yes it still makes me sad ! I guess they burned the paper work because they thought it might have information that would get people into trouble , Germans I guess . But that stuff is still out there , and it would be a wonderful find ! Someday I hope .

    Some people are just inherently Stupid....just ask JoeT and his recycling business...some people disposing of stuff like he's found should simply be put out of their own misery...

    Amazing to see what pops up now and then. What a collection. You can bet there is more tucked away and forgotten. Just hope the right person finds it .
