    Defensive position January 2, 1939, the mission was to protect the road between Camarasa and Artesa de Segre (important communications hub). Elements of the 38 mixed brigade (72 Republican division) defended this height against the 82 and 84 "National" Infantry Divisions. On January 3, once the fog was lifted, German-made Heinkel 111 bombers unleashed the area, followed by an artillery strike by 105 howitzers for 1 hour. After the assault of the 82nd Infantry Division took place by two flanks making a clamp on the positions, there was no resistance. In the upper area of the position, at the bottom of a trench we found a buried soldier, age: over 17 years, a few meters the two humerus bones of another young soldier (between 20 and 25 years). Soon we will proceed to the excavation of the human remains but today we will do the demining of the area.

    Had the young soldier been buried by his companions?

    I dont think so, his mates were in rapid withdrawal, surely he was buried by the enemy (who were also Spanish) or by those of the nearby town once the combat was over.

    Soon a war archaeologist and a team will come to dig it up, look for DNA and give it a decent burial. If I'm lucky, I'll be able to post a story about this in the coming weeks.

    Another fast hunt in the same area, 1.5 hours before the heat makes me sweat drops.

    Krupp 77mm German, at first it seemed empty but when cleanig sand I saw it still conserved half of the trilite isinde. It is well hidden and waiting to be reported.

    B-3 hand grenade, unlike Krupp seemed to be active but was completely empty, without charge and without initiator.

    photo_2019-07-20_18-10-40.jpg

    Various German, Czech, Spanish, Russian ammunition, etc.
    the most outstanding:

    PS 1937, 7mm mauser, Pirotécnica de Sevilla 1937 (Pyrotechnics of Seville)

    FNC MEXICO 1932, 7mm mauser, MEXICO 1932 Fábrica Nacional Cartuchería (national cartridge factory)

    It's what I like the most, collect ammunition markings from the 7mm mauser mainly. There are many and very curious.
    I have some unopened packages of German ammunition 7.92x57mm, the box is marked in French (20 cartouches) and to avoid the blockade of arms sales to Spain they were sent first to Holland and then illegally entered Spain on a freighter that in theory I carried groceries. Humans for bad things use the brain a lot.
