2 lost bren gun carriers: Unst
« on: August 01, 2017, 10:30:30 AM »
Got talking to one of the Unst dig organisers and he says they have been searching for some time now for two lost bren gun carriers that were buried underground at some time during or after the second world war.  We were discussing just how deep a modern detector could go and we all thought perhaps something this size could be detected even if it is extremely deep.  Apparently they have narrowed down their search area to around 3 sites on the island after doing loads of research.
Don't think my wee narrow spade would be ideal for digging these up.
