    That's a shame. I must admit, though, that there is usually a lot of research involved in finding these locations - it's not like I randomly stumble upon ammunition dumps on my way to the grocery store
    Yes...but I spent all 8 months on a former Luftwaffe base!

    More bakelite stuff muzzle flash reducer boxes, or well, pieces of boxes. All dated 1943 or 1944.

    Ah, looks like a well-cleaned place (on Google Earth at least). A shame you didn't find anything.

    Looks like some of them are still in reasonable condition. Did you take any with you?

    I only take photos
    Over the years I've occasionally rescued items from trash piles for preservation but that has always been an exception - usually I take absolutely nothing. That said, I do think at least that one canister with the stamps still visible (shown earlier) deserves to be rescued. I would love to see it in a museum
