Alex, a lot of them laying around in “Altes Lager” near to ex-storage area of the russian housing and Military camp. all heavily rusted…and a lot of similar ones, but smaller…
Unffortunatelly I made no photos in 1990, as I was there
Altes Lager, near Jüterbog was from 1870 (Prussian Military area) til 1992 (russian Military camp) and is heavily infested with Military relicts on the ground…

Peter, too bad, you should have collected some!
This way I could have been taking photos of them…

Thank you for the correct ID and drawings. I have changed the title of the thread to reflect that.
