We strolled into the forest and ofcourse I wanted to impress her finding some good stuff, but every signal I picked up with the Fisher to begin with was nails,wire bits, horseshoes and horseshoe ice cleats. But I ve been digging here lots before so I took direction towards the area I knew would hold dumping pits.
On the bottom of the pit was a layer of organic stuff, some animal bones, rotting uniform bits and leather parts from boots and ammo pouches. I kept scraping away the soil and I saw something made of aluminium, I didn`t dare to hope, but when I had removed enough sol I saw it was a aluminium Heer buckle!! I was overjoyed :)
It was late in the afternoon by now and we decided to just clean up the side walls and then found a large pocket of M24 stick grenade parts. Hundreds of them. Both my backpacks was filled to the breaking point in no time, so it was definately time to call it quits for the day. The hole was filled back and we decided to continue tomorrow morning so it ll be an early evening tonight. Hopefully there will be more interesting finds in this ditch.
Stay muddy and keep smiling :)
