I took a small rest before I began digging, having alittle to eat to get new energy and then started digging. Luckily it was sandy soil and no big roots covering the signal but still it was a bit of a job. Some 50-60 cm down I found the corner of something massive and corrugated and understood that it was a stove from a barrack. I ve dug enough of them earlier to be familiar with how they look. It took a while to free it from the soil and to get it out of the hole, luckily it wasn`t filled with sand, then it would have been a damn hard job to get it out. I ve found these stoves in two sizes and this was the larger version. Sadly it had no Org. Todt markings and both the doors were missing.
I searched the side walls of the hole and then found the bottom of it. It held mostly rusted trash and a lot of charcoal and ashes, but also a few items worth saving, like the lid of a mess kit, an ink pot and three medical bottles and a nice enamelled candle holder.
By now all the clouds had dispersed and the sun was shining and if I hadn`t had an appoinment for free dinner at my parents I would have stayed searching some more hours , but free dinner at Moms is a luxury one can`t refuse.
Tomorrow is reported to be nice and sunny and I have a new forest I am going to check out, a place I didn`t know about before and supposedly it was a German camp there.
So until then, be nice, and try stay muddy :)
