    WW2 Ground dug relics - Saving history

    Is there really that much WW2 history still to be recovered? There certainly is, as you can see from my little collection of what some refer to as 'rusty tat'. It isn't......it's WW2 history.

    I'd need coffee and time, and my close lookers to move through the collection. There wouldn't be much to say, lots to slowly and carefully look at though...

    Considering the Belgian Army(Frenchicon Army too) has full time EOD guys still finding and disposing of ordnance dating to W.W. I. I seem to recall seeing something about English construction guys finding UXB's in just about every hole they dig, yeah there's lots of stuff still to be found. Think you're going to need a bigger room.
    Years ago, in downtown Toronto, construction guys were digging a hole on the site of an Armoury that had been demolished in 1963 and found at least one crate of intact Spencer Carbines. All of which instantly disappeared. Cops asked for their return, but were ignored entirely. So it's not just in Englandicon. snicker.

    Spelling and Grammar count!
