Thank you, Id like to shere. They are from "heart of Europe " - Czech Republic. In the ww2, liberators from the east and west joined in this place and pushed the germans soldiers to north to retreat. So you can find something from the everyday army...

Those are some very nice finds! I really like the tank badges. Do you know what they are made of? Looks like silver to me.

These elements of the uniform are made of aluminum.
For two years I served in the Soviet Army and wore these
elements on clothes.

Yes, Europe is rich in relic from ww2. When I started with a detector, I did not like wartime artifacts. I have also succumbed to them over time. As you say, it's a piece of history ...Thank you

Your items have nothing to do with ww2, because they are from Cold War period.
The period between 1947 - 1991 (when communism fell in Eastern Europe, when the Soviet Union collapsed)

You are searching items where Russian military base were based and when they left your country, they left many useless items behind.
But be very carefull, because they may have left some chemical things that may harm your health.

The Cold War was a state of geopolitical tension after World War II between powers in the Eastern Bloc (the Soviet Union and its satellite states) and powers in the Western Bloc (the United States, its NATO allies and others).
The term "cold" is used because there was no large-scale fighting directly between the two sides, but they each supported major regional wars known as proxy wars.

Hello Lett. I am again glowing over your knowledge. You are telling a true story as if you were going with me ... It's like you say, I'm searching around the abandoned Soviet military area. Soviet soldiers left them when our communist era fall down. Only I was thinking about thats military areas they were built when WW2 was near of finish, when the soviets pushed the Germans. But you have true, thats areas were build after WW2 was finished. So again, thank you for clarifying the information and warning. Its true, in area is many barrels with different chemicals and many, many ammunition ...
