    It is nice to see the Box Steel P59 with the 4 x shell clamp present.

    Can't wait to see them cleaned up
    "Any live or recovered ordnance in my posts has been dealt with by trained EOD personnel"

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
    Barbeques on fire by the chalets past the castle headland
    I watched the gift shops glitter in the darkness off the Newborough gate
    All these moments will be lost in time, like icecream on the beach
    Time for tea.

    Fantastic find. Are they all dated pre 1940 ?

    Yes, 1938 and 1939. There was a gun emplacement in 1940 near the farm. Everything was left when the German army invaded belgium in a high speed. The farm is for over 5 generations from the same family, that’s how I know this history. The guns and ammo were taken by the germans.
