When I was driving towards the dumping pit today I decided to make a stop by another german camp for just a quick walk through. I ended up spending the whole day there mostly walking around searching for signals to dig. I stumbled across a couple of small dumping pits but there was nothing interesting in them except a medical bottle and a perfume bottle. Of the other signals I dug it was 99% rubbish today, but two signals was the right stuff. The first one I dug was just under the moss and it was a very nice Stalag POW tag. The other was a fieldmade tag, it reads 186 and something more I will try to figure out. I kept searching and digging until it started to become dark but had no more luck. Maybe the finds will be better next time,, or maybe they won`t, you never know with this hobby:) Have a nice weekend :)
Medical- and pefrume bottle.
Wooden ball-top,from a tool of some kind prehaps.
Two k98 casings, a clasp, and a button.
POW ID tag. Stalag IID.
The two tags. The Stalag tag is still uncleaned.
It was easy enough to spell out most of the cyrillic letters on the tag. Because of the fold a little bit of guesswork and help from some Legenda members was needed and the engraving spells a surname, "Novikov"
After cleaning the Stalag tag lightly. It is a very cool find as it is a repaired tag, a very well made repair. Very happy with this find.
