With a tractor we was digging a trenchline searching for fallen soldiers, as the digger removed layer by layer we sweeped the cleared ground with our metaldetectors. When I moved the detector to the shoulder of the trench I had a great signal and moments later I realized it was a gun of some sort. It took a little work to carefully get it out from the soil and it was a great feeling when I had it up in the daylight. A Red Army Mosin rifle with fixed bayonet. In the bottom of the trench we also found a German helmet which when cleaned turned out to be a real stunner.
