Recently recovered Kurland relics

These Items where all found by our digging colleague Maris this weekend in the Kurland pocket.

This German Helmet was brought back home from last weekend trip around Kurland pocket…
Clear evidence that also in Kurland pocket we had our own camo helmets!!
Lifted it up from a 1m deep sand fox hole quite far away from front line!
An old man who lives there told me that it might have belonged to one of German Einsaztkomandos groups who operated in this area having been involved in forest fights against Russian partisans!
Yesterday it was cleaned as much as possible and  a wax cover put on it.

These relics where found in one small bunker in an area where NORDLANDS operated! There were no remains with these item and all items were laying on floor of the Bunker.
SS visor eagle felt apart but still looks impressive…..(made of thick cooper -silver plated).. with clearly visible silver remains.
Ring is silver made-without markings but we recognize the NORWEGIAN flag and runes and its all hand cut.

    your finds are great, I’m surprised that conservation of steel here in France everything is in very poor condition, best is that all of these pieces is a story with those who are concerned them
      I envy you so much for this research

  2. Thanks for your kind words think it’s the ground as I know in France a lot if limestone and chalk not good for preserving metal !! But in Latvia very marshy and cold ground almost permafrost and low oxygen hence why metal is well preserved
