By the way you certainly found yourself a good digging spot.

There seems to be an unlimited reserve of finds at your dig spot. What kind of a place was it? A camp where soldiers stayed before being sent back to the UK? A field hospital?

I think of a grateful passage coming from Arromanches of Baths, on the spot there are still the individual holes, the zone of rest, exploitation of the water, reserve for foods, material, running storage, a mini village !

Hello,
In the same sector discovery of this plate(patch) of German soldier, it is about a SS VT, is possible being Das Reich or L.A.H ???
Doubtless a detention center before the departure for England?

I found finally, it is about his girlfriend who mattered a lot for our airman, I think of a present for its departure towards the island of Malta, these planes bore Jean's name...
