Not all dugouts are useful
We have a tradition to celebrate almost all the holidays in the forest. And once again, on February 23 the Russian holiday, Defender of the Fatherland Day, we went to celebrate in the forest with an overnight stay in a tent. It was pretty cool, but there was no snow, so we could dig with pleasure.
The day began with the fact that not far from the our tent , I found an aluminum German fork spoon with the stigma C&C W39.
Read: One more dugout
Then, moving about a meter away, I heard a faint signal. Digging it out it turned out to be an ordinary button, but after it, a bakelite Chloride and a wooden German peg for a tent with a mark “40” (year of produce) appeared from the same pit.
Next came a signal, it turned out to be a toothpaste tube, and next to the toothbrush with the rest of the bristles.
Then I decided that I need to remove the top layer of the ground to check other things that don’t give a signal on metaldetector and started digging. And not in vain. One after another, the stainless steel plug with the stigma “RUSTFRIT STAAL” appeared.
Then there were toothbrushes, tent pegs, iron spoons and forks , scissors and more little things. In general, many finds were collected from this small area.
While I was digging my friends also had interesting finds, such as bayonet knife K-98, german ax, pot lids and another. Meanwhile, my another friend from our company was digging a nearby dugout. Having spent 2 days on it and a bunch of forces in this dugout, there was only one peg for the tent and nothing more. So not all the dugouts always delight with finds, sometimes it is better to dig somewhere else)
If you want watch video of this day you can see it on our Youtube channel and more finds in Instagram:
