All right that's it. I'm going to collect butterfly pictures.
I'm not saying I'm frustrated or anything, but boy am I.
I remember, we found also many many helmets last year; but not in this condition, with colours.....
i was in a lucky day !!
cant believe my eyes
I think I just made a baby!
Absolutely stunning!!! hope that more pictures are available? also of other items found...
Thanks for sharing
Amazing. What is that square area they were found in? It looks like a sump of some type. I'm surprised that the leather liners of the helmets aren't in better condition being in that dark soil and being kept wet, i thought those kind of conditions preserved leather! If the conditions changed enough in that pit for the leather to rot, dried out in summer moist in autumn, then i would have thought the conditions would have been ideal for rust and corrosion to have attacked the steel shells but they look in remarkable condition for having been in that pit for 90 years, lucky find. And they're for sale now as well, very lucky find. Just as well that no one else has poked around there for the last 90 years
more pictures comming soon !
