Yeah. It sure looks like a hanging body to me. Sad but interesting.
I don't see the feet....
Mam, your husband that was reported missing in acition 64 years ago has been found.
I think if they can identify the body, the family, assuming there still is one, will be happy to attend a proper burial. Even though it is sad that people did go missing in action like that, its a relief knowing the body is finally found, no matter the condition it is in.
Remains of the war are found all the time. You know they say they find bullets and such in Omaha beach? Well on the eastern front they find t34s. YouTube - t-34 russian tank recovered from the swamp
Oh yea. All over there are things from the war. Its just a matter of looking. It seems like the Eastern Front and Pacific get a lot of WW2 findings.
Also its cool that it was a German T-34.
A few years back they also pulled a T-34 out of a swamp here in Estonia. They said that it looked like brand new when they first pulled it out but after 15 minutes of exposure to air, it already started to rust.
Kinda depends. There's lots of stuff in my town from WW2. When I had a paperroute I saw a huge ass AA gun in some guy's backyard. There are a few craters here and there in the woods aswell. The first sign of invasion here were airplanes flying overhead, back in the day most people in Norway had maybe seen an airplane once or twice before, so an airplane ment there was was something big going on. Uphill we also still have the air raid siren. Fighting only went on here for a month though, but there were lots of commando raids in Telemark which is my neighboring county.
Kev4000;4556793You know they say they find bullets and such in Omaha beach?
They don't :p Tried it myself, I probably was 40 years to late. All dangerous materials are removed by government and all other metal objects are plundered by collectors. We also searched around an artillery bunker, also no succes. We did had succes on an farmers field. :p
There is that story from Band of Brothers where Major Winters went back to Foy with Dr. Ambrose and his wife and he described where he set up his MGs to cover the assault into the village. One of group bent over and picked up a 30 caliber casing right where Winters said his MG was.
Hey, I found a U.S. Civil War bullet fragment where I used to work.
