Here's some history that was unintentionally preserved.

Would love to have the Artillery Luger that is in that holster.

Makes one wonder what other as-of-yet unearthed history lies out there. Cool find nonetheless. Wonder if they will try or are able to ID the soldiers and return the remains to family?

Upon seeing that title, my immediate thought was "crates of Gew.98 in mummy wrap condition".
