    Default Berlin Tempelhof find

    Hi all,

    I was browsing about Tempelhof Field the other day, the Berlin airport which is now a huge open park, and stumbled onto this, digging a bit into the ground, having nearly tripped over it. I was wondering if it may be a kind of cartridge left over from ww2 ? Or is that getting my hopes too high. Here is a pic: It might also be just a useless piece of scrap metal. It felt heavy.

    It looks like some sort of solid anti tank shot, possible sabot?

    I was there a few years ago when it was still a semi-functioning airport. Wish I had a chance to poke around

    Yea, the park is flabbergasting : you can walk for ages without seeing the other end of the airport field. Amazing. Would the cartridge, if it is one, be dangerous to handle, if it was simply discarded and not fired (Considering it was quite heavy) ?

    I buried it back into the ground,maybe I should go and pick it up again.

    I would go back and pick it up as i believe it could be some sort of ammunition like Kc1 said

    Aye, the main terminal is off limits for the moment, I think they're reserving it for events and such, but the grounds are all open. That is, except for a few scattered radar-like smallish buildings that are fenced off.

    I have heard rumor of lage underground bunkers filled with WW2 ordinance. But probably a LOT of stuff just lying around from the battle for Berlin

    Ha, that would be interesting, I hadn't heard that story. I was telling myself that Berlin construction workers must probably sift through lots of battle rubble sometimes, surely they fall on the odd undetonated bomb and so forth.
