One more dugout
On a hot summer day, a company of three of us went to explore some dugouts near a town within the Leningrad front. As you can see, we had to take an ATV there because it was way too muddy to walk.
We removed the ceiling from the first dugout and had to dig through rich blue clay to reach the floor. Before we even hit the floor, we started finding really interesting things, such as a wooden box for shells. It was in such good condition that it still had its leather handles. We also found a 1940 B&C Berlin cap comforter.
We also found various trifles, such as sanitary plasters, American cans delivered by Lendliz , newspapers, Mauser and Luger cartridges and a wooden device for removing boots (see the the last photo).
Read: Nice December day
By the time we were really getting down it to business, it started to get really dark. So, we set up our tents and fried forest mushrooms we had gathered during our afternoon break over a campfire. The most delicious meal is a dinner cooked over a campfire.
The next day, we continued digging at the same dugout, and when we raised the floor, even more interesting finds began to appear. First, we found a German copper ring in the shape of a skull with eyes painted red. Unfortunately, once the ring dried up the red paint flaked off.
