British army dump site – April 2017

A dig from earlier in the year saw myself and the RRPG recovering finds from the British army dump site permission of ours.

A great day digging with some truly amazing finds being recovered and preserved. This site really is remarkable, having relics from both world wars and even earlier! Some of these relics are really quite rare little things!
