    Russian searching for WW2 relics and lost Russian and German soldiers in 1941-43

    Hi people, I知 really sorry for my terrible English. My name is Alexander, I知 from Moscow Russia.

    I知 leader of the (directly from Russian) 都earching detachment (briefly SD) located in Moscow. Our 鉄D called 迭oad Front in allusion to famous Russian chocolate factory 迭ot-Front , but in English the name of our SD rather 展ar Road. My friends and I searching for losted Russian and German soldiers was died on Russian battle field from 1941 to 1943. SD 迭oad Front is non-government and non-commercial organization of people ho interested in such form of the searching. All our equipment, auto痴, metal detector and more we by itself. The money to the searching expedition痴 to the place of battle we spend from our purse. For the searching we use metal detector like: White痴 Matrix M6 and DFX, Minelab x-terra 30 and Explorer SE, Garret ACE 250. For the deep scanning we use White痴 TM808, Fisher Gemini 3 and selfmade impulse metaldetector like PulseStar II PRO. Here some photo痴 of our finds. If you like this, I try to translate you some story about our searching expedition痴 to battle field of the World War 2.

    The "some weapon" is a Russian PPSH. The gun that helped drive the Germans out of your country. Very important to your nations history.
    The other two look to be Mauser K98s.
    You have a bittersweet hobby. On the one hand it is exciting to be digging such historic relics, on the other it is sad to find the bones of fallen comrades and enemies alike. The human toll was in the tens of thousands with unknown numbers of lost and missing soldiers on both sides. There is an endless supply of buried ordnance so be very careful with it when you find it. Here in the U.S.A there are still people being killed by unexploded shells from our Civil War which ended in 1865. Those mortars could easily still explode and be just as deadly today as they were in 1943.

    What does your team do to help identify the remains you find? This is a fascinating topic for me. There was someone else here who dug war relics and was able to contact the Germans about returning the German remains. That would be the honorable thing I think.

    Your English is easy to read. Not bad at all.

    Awesome job you are doing. Thank you for bring history out of the ground for all to see. I believe it was Nahabit who found a German grave and reported it to the authorities. German soldiers were flown home and given military funeral at home...If I remember correctly.

    English is very readable and understandable.

    Re: Russian searching for WW2 relics and lost Russian and German soldiers in 1941-43

    Thank all off you for the good response. In the next post’s I’ll try to tell you about our work to find the name and kinsfolk of the lost soldier’s whose remains we discovered.
    The man who searching war relict’s in the Russia call – digger. I would like to present you slide-show about our expedition’s, the background song of this slide-show is Russian digger’s folklore. I was translated the lyrics of this song as I can.

    That is URL of the slide-show: http://video.mail.ru/mail/dagurov/14/15.html

    Once upon the time in the forest I met one man,
    He was diging out another man,
    He was looking for his medals and bullet’s,
    He coveted his metal mutze.

    Old pathfinder with serene eyes,
    Your know, Who and where they were buried many years ago.
    Old pathfinder with serene eyes,
    Your know, Who and where they were buried once and for all.

    I asked him: where are from so much metal?
    His answer was: many people were covered up with earth here,
    But looking for the "Red Stars" are useless,
    And the "Iron Cross's" decayed here a lot off.

    Old pathfinder with serene eyes,
    Your know, Who and where they were buried many years ago.
    Old pathfinder with serene eyes,
    Your know, Who and where they were buried once and for all.

    He told me cock-and-bull story’s:
    Heavy fighting was here allegedly.
    And his face with tints of the ground,
    Was smirked in the plateglass shovel.

    Old pathfinder with serene eyes,
    Your know, Who and where they were buried many years ago.
    Old pathfinder with serene eyes,
    Your know, Who and where they were buried once and for all.

    We were drinking and eating some bread crisps.
    Now is quiet here and shells are don’t bursting.
    On the stab the soul of that german sits,
    And don’t know how come back to Dresden

    Once upon the time, I met in the forest one man
    He was diging out another man...

    That huge mine at 1:41 into your slideshow would have caused a dark patch in my pants if I had found it.
    The closest thing to that we have here in America is Civil War battlefields and they are off limits for digging.

    Very interesting work you do.

    This is antitank German mine TMi-35, about 11,5lb of TNT. This is URL on video, where this mine was exploded:

    Can I ask why?? It is out of respect for the dead or because this is a family site?? Just curious. You can PM me if you wish. Thanks.

    The gun is a PPSH submachine gun.

    I held one of those in Budapest
