About 108 items in a days dig, that's about an 18 hr day, you need to get some rest, you'd be buggered after that. Some good finds there.

That is absolutely astounding Tony 8) How big a day did you put in mate? How much junk did you have to dig to retrieve that amount of targets? You've already pulled a shite load out of that site and by the looks of that haul there is plenty left. What size area do you have to play on at that site? More info please tongue Absolutely amazeballs man thumbsup thumbsup

Hi gang, Havn't detected in a while thanks to work but finally got back out to the ww2 traing camp on sunday. What a great day it was.
We detected a area we had a quick hunt in a while back and found some american finds, so we went back there. A total surprise was the mississippi tax token, thought it was a chinese coin at first. Also found my first dog tag and a boomerang harmonica. Cheers, Tony.

The soil is about 80% sand 20% soil. If you were keen enough you could dig with your hands.
This is how the soil looks
