Well, this thread is rather depressing. This is also the reason why certain bunker fortifications as well as underground storage areas have been shut close and buried very deep and prepared plant life placed so the advancing americans in the Lorraine forests would not find anything except the ones they expected, and they only expected the old bunker fortifications and buildings.
In one case we have found certain interesting items like for example the Swastika Standarte for the NS Ortsgruppe of the city of Metz.
The only other one i have seen so far from the Moselle region was the one from St. Avold which sadly resides in the USA today.

For those in here who talked about the known fortifications in Alsace Lorraine, when the soldiers around Feste Kaiserin warned you to be careful, they should tell that anyone around this area. You have no idea how many ordnance is strewn all over the forests between Nancy up to Metz and further north up to Amneville.
It's almost as bad as in Hürtgen Forest. The only difference is that the villagers around Metz and Nancy are completly uninformed about the "treasures" their forests and fields are hiding beneath. It seems like the press in Alsace and Lorraine are either not interested in such dangerous finds, or they think it's better if the people are not aware. Well, so far everything went well apparently.

But yes, be very careful and don't dig around if you don't have someone with you who learned this either in the army or from a another type of scholarship.
Especially in the area west, north west and south west of the city of Metz i'd stay away as hobby detector, there are still countless of S-Mines (the late-war glass version). So a metal-detector won't help you there. These late-war versions are also the reason why certain areas of the Hürtgen Forest are shut off by law and have never been searched for MIA/KIA soldiers because it's littered with the glass versions of the S-Mines.

Be careful!

I must have missed something but already in January 2013 the last surviving bunkers of the LXXXII HQ at Aire-sur-la-Lys, a 608 and a Michelmannstand, were demolished. And what came in place? A parking lot! :x
Unbelievable..

They are very busy with demolishing the last remaining T-750 at the Emsstrasse Wilhelmshaven. 3 out of 4 were allready demolished in the last 5 years. It were the nicest bunkers of Wilhelmshaven..
