can anyone tell me what i found here. It is about 74mm and 90mm in diameter. If it is what I think it is, it doesn’t quite match the WW2 story that happened here.
I do not know what it could be. I do know you should call police or EOD for safe disposal.
I called them immediately after this find
Looks like a 75mm armor piercing, unfired and pulled from its cartridge case.
That’s what I thought too. I found it at a German fake airbase in the Netherlands. But they only had FlaK 30/38. And machine guns. Still, I found parts of a mortar and this bullet here. However he was in the ground, it looks more like it was thrown into the ground.
Could have been used as a training site or disposal area after the war.
Then I think the Germans tried to destroy this ammunition during one of the last days of the war. I know that during “Mad Tuesday” (September 5, 1944) these kinds of practices took place. But that does mean they took this from somewhere else out there to destroy it. Thank you for this information.
