Very nice mess tin! Looks like one cirrilic inscription as "ОСТЯК"
Nice mess kit... It is amazing some of the trench art things that can be found and equally amazing what a soldier can do to pass the long hours. Dimas may be familiar with the story of a German bunker uncovered several years ago by the diggers in the Demyansk area I think?? This particular shelter had the floor completly covered in a mosaic of spent shell casings. They were pushed one by one into the soil floor "bullet end" down so that the pimer ends were still exposed.
this is my found in a old house near Cassino
Is a mess tin with engraved of 29 Panzer Grenadier Division Falke.
