17 Cache of German Saboteurs Found 70 Years After the War

Cache of German Saboteurs Found 70 Years After the War

Posted on February 22, 2016 by team


Here’s an interesting finding from a Latvian forest – five hermetic containers intended for German saboteurs, who acted in the time of WWII in the rear of Red Army. All these seventy years the containers were reliably protected from moisture, so the contents are preserved even better than it could be at a warehouse.

Hand grenade RGD-33. The cap well is empty.

Polish offensive grenade.

    A bit dangeroous to handle… explosives, old detonators…
    I hope they’re true pros

    Is there any logical reason as to why all these images couldn’t be posted on one single page? Having to click through two images at a time is extremely annoying. I just can’t be bothered. Sorry.

    • rostit says:

      yes. there is a very logical reason. I paid $2.50 to ER a few years ago and I get all images on one page. Maybe stop being cheap and support a site if you enjoy it.

        This buddy is on every page bitching about the pictures. Someone told him to go to change.org and start a petition. ;)

    WHY do you say this is from German saboteurs?
    Haven’t looked at but about half of this, but with a couple of exception everything I see is russian.

    Does anyone know what the engraving on the pistol says?

  12. Frank says:

    @L’hiver
    I can not actually read it, but the ammunition is French, and the revolver is the French 1892 model, as far as I could find out. There is a tin shown that says “Schmirgel” which is German and means emery, but otherwise I can not identify anything as being German.

    All this stuff was for destroy soviet-russian occupants

    I grew up hearing a story from my dad’s best friend who was Hungarian and was conscripted into the German Luftwaffe in the war. He told a story of hiding pistols and grenades in a cave, coated with cosmoline for preservative. I remember him saying the cave was near Austria. As a kid, we loved the story and were some day going to find it with his map. He died, and my father has passed also. This looks like the place they were talking about!
