    The duracell one appears to 1.5V so called AA :-)
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Looks like m60 blanks

    As you live in Holland they would be 7.62x51mm NAVO, and they would be either for the FAL or the MAG. The linkes are for a MAG.

    Top pic is interesting, look like short blanks rather than the normal bulleted blanks, perhaps grenade launching blanks?

    Middle pic shows normal 7.62mm blanks with nato links

    bottom pic looks a mix of .303 rimmed and 7.62mm so the .303 are the only possible ww2 items, check the headstamps and post them up and TonyE can tell you all about them.

    Top picture on the left are three aluminium cased blanks made by NWM.I think these are grenade discharger blanks.

    Centre picture shows normal NATO M82 blanks (M60 is the weapon) and bottom picture could be some 7.92x57 mixed in with the .303. Let me know the headstamps.

    Thanks for the informations guys.

    The forest I went has also been used as military training facility, so that explains the blanks..
    I sorted out the rest a bit, see the pic for the headstamps.
    If this information helps out identifying more, im thankful.

    Grtz

    Number 3 is made in Radway Green in 1942 and is a mark VII cartridge (you are reading it upside down!!)

    Number 4 are all WW2 German 7.92mm cartridges. The S means it is a brass case (although are you sure it isn't S* ?), the 16 is a batch number and the 39 the year of manufacture. P131 is the manufactuer code, in this case being German Waffen-u. Munitions factories AG, Werk Berlin-Borsigwalde.

    Your others appear to be post WW2 and out of my area of expertise ! However, number 1 appears to be .30cal cartridges and number 2 appear to be 303s.

    The "AI" headstamped rounds are made by Artillerie-Inrichtingen of Hembrug, an old established Dutch weapon and ammunition maker. The top left are .30 calibre and the middle group are .303 inch. The Dutch were still using the Bren at that date.
