Went to Omaha Beach in Normandy this year, they are still finding things from the D Day landings. The latest was a full flame thrower back pack found in March this year.

while i think the one first shown is a fake. (check how the soil on/around is black. but the soil it stands on is brown). if you check the other finds, it seems possible to find good or bad examples. this being a beliveable good find. http://www.detektorweb.cz/index.4me?s=show&i=3023&mm=1&vd=1 :)
thats probally just down to the strata......looks legit to me.....why fake it....there huge amounts of WW2 iron in europe its being dug up all the time.....theres places where you cant move for tripping over the stuff....WW1 and 2

the first few pics dont sit right with me. the one with the arrow just looks wrong!.did they dig it out or was it on the surface covered up. im not saying there are not good finds out there, just it looks a bit sus! if only we had so much iron to dig up. :)
BTW i have done a zuffle v but i cant say to who ;) but on the tv :)

These were both found in bogs and due to totallack of oxygen they are fantastically well preserved.

Heavy tabks bogs equals sink, heavy lifting machinery and a bit of research equals mint tanks easy really

i remember seeing a programme about 10 years aog......this group found a WW2 bomber....i think a B17 way out in the midle of nowhere.....it had been landed and left.....it was covered in snow and ice but still on the surface......as it was intact the only way they could move it was fly it.......so they rebuilt the engines and made it air worthy over several years......the chief mechanic died from the conditions.....they finished it so it was able to fly and cleared a runway .....but as they were taking off a can of fuel/generator fell over inside and set the plane ablaze......it was totaled .....it was a long programme and you really felt gutted for the guys..... :(
