    Tried German AND Russian , could this be a British / U.S. Armour cap/cover ?

    ALLIED tank etc armoured cover/cap ? Is this a cover/cap that may be fitted on outside of tank or under an exterior cover/cap (or even on engine etc inside)

      Thanks for posting the pics. I've read a lot about the SS-Nord battles in Karelia, but it's really nice to see some modern-day pics of the battleground. I like your battlefield relics, too.

      I like the photo of the pile of helmets, bottles, the half mess tin and what appears to be a gun barrel and that metered compressed gas canister. One other item caught my attention, the round can with the H/H. Any idea what was in the can? Also, I am curious to know if the bottles were German or Russian.

      What books have you read about this part of the Continuation War? I'm looking for info on relatives that lived in that area at that time. Anything will be helpful in advancing my project.
