I strolled into the forest making some noise to scare any hungry bears away and the Fisher gave off a good signal just a few steps in between the trees. I removed the moss and tore away some roots and saw the oval shape of a German Erkennungsmärke. I lifted it out into the sunlight and just had to accept that it was a blank unissued tag. I looked around for more of the same signal but found only a pair of stirrups and three shovels.
In the surrounding area I could see where some of the barracks had stood and searched in and around them. Naturally it was a lot of nails there but I also found some tools, more K98 rounds, a brass comb, some uniform buttons and a couple of horseshoes. Between two of the barrack foundations was another dumping pit which I had to check out. It was a hard dig, full of large heavy rocks and lots of broken bottles and glass. It was few relics worth saving in it as well, a couple more food tins, a bakelite losantine tablet box and some more Mauser casings.
The rest of the day I walked around digging signals and one more dumping pit. In the pit was nothing other than rust and glass, but I dug out a pioneer axe, a stripper clip, a small knife, a 9mm round and a cover for a lantern.
The last signal I dug today was a orange smoke box with most of its text still intact.
Tomorrow I might not have the time to go digging, but hopefully the rest of the week will be spent searching for more rusted treasures:)
Keep Smiling :)
