Classic posted the link to this article. Nice find of WW2 machine guns. It is interesting to scroll down on his cleanup efforts on the guns. He did a good job
looking at the last photo of them.

Thanks Buck
Got it that time, man what a find. Love modern archaeology in European war zones. I see these vids on youtube where people all over Europe and Russia find items from 1914/18 and 1939/45. It's chilling to see US Army helmets with holes in them and sometimes amazing to see how some items were preserved
I can't believe the MG 15 came out so good considering the time that had passed and it was underground.
That same RAF base Nijmegen, was home to the first Allied combat jets in WW 2. The RAF stationed Gloster Meteors there in January 1945. Ironically base was attacked by German Arado Ar 234 Jet Bombers in March 1945.

Very cool, would it be legal to keep them? I mean are they unusable now is that why? I figured there would be some stupid law "once a machine gun always a machine gun" thing.....

MG15 can come home with me forever and ever.

Dunno..They could/may be classified as war relics.
