It was a nice helmet! With lots of color showing and a decal too!! The liner had been ripped out and is maybe laying around somewhere near. The last find on the previous trip was a helmet and today the first find! What a crazy time we are living in! :D
In front of me I saw a couple of holes in the ground and they all had signals in them so I spent the next few hours checking them out. It wasn`t too much in them, but some bottles and a whole lot of Göffels. Too bad they were all made of steel so they were all rotted. The next pit had some bakelite. Four "cups" for fuzes, but none of their lids could be found.
Around in the forest it was also a lot of signals, but it was mostly bolts, nails, wires and rubbish. I did find a small pile of signal flares and a strange trench-art thing. Something to hang keys or towels on maybe. Two of the signals were of a bit more scary nature. First I found a 1kg pioneer slab, a Sprengbüchse 24. The second was a big surprise, a magnetic antitank charge, a "Hafthohlladung". So I guess EOD will have fun later :D
I kept at if for an hour more but as I didn`t find anything else, the blackflies were feasting on me, I was soaked and it started raining I began moving to the car. As I was about to drive home the landowner came by and we had a chat where he gave me a tip about a place where it could be some rust. Hopefully I will find something there :)
Now it is time to dry up a bit :)
