  • incredible WW1 ground digged find!!!!!!!

    Attachment 239299Attachment 186914I'm sharing here with the WW1 aficionados,what i think is the most incredible find for a couple of years ,in our soil of France.
    A member of my french forum digged this stuff last week,in a kind of dump site.
    This is not something our eyes are able to see without instantly crying....
    And it's only the beginning,he's today back on the place and keep on diggin'!!

      That is a truely amazing find, I'm shocked there is anything beyond rusted out junk to be found from WW1!!! Was it a clay soil, I wonder what helped the preserve the helmets so well? Looks like a $20,000+ payday as well as a great historical find for you!!!

      Has anyone ever find a functioning rifle in the ETO that was burried or submerged? I would think the only hope of finding an intact mechanical device from WW1/2 would be artic regions of Finland/Norway/Russia or bottom of an anaerobic lake...

      It's is great to know that pieces of history are still within reach of the ordinary man, outside of the musuem's glass case or expensive collector's market!

      How deep does that hole go down?

      Is it a bunker entrance or a well?

      Hi!
      Deep is about 1m60!
      Not a bunker entrance but i think it's something like a shooting hole!!
