After a slightly traumatizing start of the day, a dentist appointment which I found no excuses not to go to, I changed into my digger clothes, grabbed the Fisher F5 and went to a small German position not far from where I live. I spent just a few hours there but it was great being out again after weeks of rain and nasty weather. There was not so many signals given by the detector here so I dug every single one I had. The result was mostly communication cables and barbed wire between the different positions and some spent Mauser ammo here and there. Definately a nice and interesting spot and I ll be back out there tomorrow to trawl the rest of the site.
The very first signal was a old German bottle cap.
A waterfilled opening in the mountain, lots of branches makes the use of magnets difficult, but maybe I ll try to clear some of it away tomorrow as there was signals from metal under there...
Bits of a cast iron oven, someone had fun using it as target practise.
Around the Mg position and the trenches around it spent ammo started to pop out..
In the same spot I found around 30 norwegian made casings, all produced from 1918-1937, what was strange was that all of them had the primer struck but they all have misfired and is still full of gunpowder..
Overgrown trenches and fighting positions is zig-zagging the little hill.
