    Just saw that I have never introduced myself here. I thought I would do that now. I am Jan, just 18 years old and I am from the Netherlands. I live near the small village of Cuijk. During the war, this area was used as a resting place for the troops fighting near Groesbeek, Nijmegen and the Reichswald.

    I search with a metal detector. I also collect mainly Candian ww2 militaria. In particular items that have a story. If anyone is interested I could post some pictures in the near future.

    I am also looking for some info regarding names on some items.

    Have a nice evening,

    Hoi Jan,

    Welkom! Zou leuk zijn om wat items te zien. Als het Engels is kan ik misschien ook wel een naam aan geven.

    Groet, Ronald.

    Hallo, bedankt voor het warme welkom! Ik zal morgen even wat items posten, behalve dan de Royal Engineers set van Arhur A. Smith die ik hier al eens geplaatst heb en een aantal bodemvondsten heb ik niet veel Engels meer.

    Hello, thank you very much for the warm welcome! Tomorrow I will post some items from my small collection.

    Hello, I saw your thread about the Canadian presence at Berg en Dal. I was searching there because of the US presence there. But, on the location marked on your I also found traces of the 'pepperpot' Lots and lots and lots of Vickers ammo boxes, and 2 large boxes for the 4.2 inch mortars.
