A search of a flooded crater in High Wood

Somme area, France,

I was dealing with one of the local lads when he noticed my "Super Mag". After showing him what it was capable of lifting, he made a phone call to a part owner of the wood and we went for a search.

    Not bad for an afternoons search.

    Caution: Leave all Ordnance well alone. We have a qualified E.O.D guy deal with all our finds.

    an average of 33 people are still killed on the Battlefields of Europe each year.

     

    Well That's the end of another crazy adventure.
