I have been involved in some excavating/digging of late,(well overseeing it done that is) and the special people that do this have found these.?
I also have this week found 5 more 50 cals on a belt 2 and a 3, and one very small round (pictures on monday.before they get handed in) the small round is not something we have seen before and i can not risk cleaning it as it could well be unstable.
PLEASE NOTE: these rounds have all been legally disposed off and the latest ones photos will be ready on Monday.
the 2 on the left are 50 cal and the centre one is a 20 mm with a steel round ? so not sure what it was used for, the 3rd one is also from a belt of ammo but again we were unable to locate any info as its too unstable to be cleaned up,
the ammo has been in the ground from may 1945 until the last few days,
thanks to Paul 'o for his help in the new 50 cal brass for the display that will be made later this year.
they are from the uk based us forces of that time so the 50 cal is as it was then and is now,
the 20mm we have no idea of thats job in life,
and the small metal belted round is ?
I can't say too much but we will be working on this loads more in the next few weeks as there is now a team of 3 guys and they are as keen as mustard to find out if there are more about the same area.
