I had been digging for a few hours by now so I took a rest and grabbed something to eat before I went back at it removing more rocks and sand. I found a large intact field battery, a rubber tarpaulin or rain poncho and a heavy part from a iron cast oven.
The ammo box was heavy so something was inside it. I took off some of the sand and got it open with no problems, the hinges and lock was like new. I hoped for it to contain a greased up gun, like my friend Jonny Bay found in Kurland, digging out a box like it, but I wasn`t that lucky, Im not of Leprechaun heritage like him. Inside was two small 5 litre cans, one unmarked and the other was marked "Petroleum". I lifted the cans out and they was both full, but the unmarked one had a hole in it and out flowed clear water. Even though it was no gun I was very happy with this awesome find.
I kept digging the pit for another hour but the rest that came out of it was rubbish. A shoe polishing brush, a large metal plate, some rubber from a tyre, a padlock and some other crap. I made sure there was no more metal or anything else down there before I sorted out the bits I wanted to keep and then refilled the hole and covered it up so it looked nice and tidy.
It was late in the afternoon and both my backpacks was full so I found it best to get back home.
It ll be an early evening for me tonight coz guess what Im doing tomorrow,,yepp, more digging :)
