There were several Odol mouthwash bottles in good condition, together with some toothbrushes and cream jars, tins and tubes. A razor and a few mirrors completed the personal hygiene relic pile on the edge where I was digging.
I dug up a few shot- and schnapps glasses and two saltshakers. One of them was very nice. Small and made of blue glass with brass fittings. The white round piece of porcelain I saw showing through the sand being scraped away turned out to be a Finnish made civillian tea cup that fit good with the plate I found last time and next to it was a orange butter jar which the German soldiers had in their food kit. Most times I find one of these it is broken, but today I was lucky and got a perfect one. A small aluminum tea egg was also in good enough shape to be rescued. I dug out a primus of the kind that were issued to soldiers and a few hooks from Y-straps. Stuck under a root was a canteen, with a bakelite screwcork togehter with a dog tag pouch in some synthetic material, a couple of pocket knives and a matchbox cover with engravings on!
As afternoon approached the piles of bottles and relics had outgrown the space in my backpack so I had to leave a tiny patch of the pit for another day.
Back home I emptied all the finds out over the floors and instructed the kitty to hunt out any spiders that might have hitchhiked, while I took a shower and after prepared dinner. Having completed the eating I picked up the matchbox cover and gave it a scrubbing, and under the much was some fine engravings. Great Success! It had lines around the edges, "1944" on one of the sides and a reindeer on the other side. Totally worth seven hours of work :D
Have a nice evening and a good week :)
