| These were in the same place,and were picked up today by the ISU bomb squad.
so the inventory is:
2 Waffen SS belts with buckles
1 SS black side cap
12 "einhandgranate" + some destroyed by rust
2 boxed with detonators(the kit that transforms a grenade into a mine)
-some rotten textiles...unindetiffied
-parts of a document case
-a large metal tube, some 25 cm long with 4 cm diameter
+ small iron parts.(maybe rest from some other rotten stuff).
I think this were hidden by a waffen ss soldier from Brasov, after 23 august.

They could also be from people parachuted behind Romanian / Soviet lines for sabotage - it happened occasionally.

|Last time I checked, years ago, if I wanted to have a metal detector I needed to get a permit from the local police. But that permit didn't give me the right to use it! Only to own it. If I wanted to use it I needed more permits. What's the legal framework now Ferdinand, have things improved? Did ISU give you trouble for finding this?|

You can legally own a metal detector. Law 182/2000 + ord 43 is clear about the protection of special areas(historic sites).
1. ask you local police burreau(Patrimoniu) about papers needed(diferent from city to city).
2 buy the detector(preferably new with invoice)
3 some 20-30 lei taxes at financial authority(anaf nu impozite)
4 legal record
5 all the papers you will aply for authorization at the Police.
Some 4-30 days you'll have the authorization.
ISU guys are very cool and they thank detectorists for removing the danger.

|Great find .If the uniform element are for an waffen ss tank regiment I think that it is very likely that they are from the guy in the picture. Ore the family of that guy give a some tips regarding the location . With this ocasion some of the guys in Romania that started ww2 reenacting movements can see that their uniforms , hats etc are not 100 % identical to the original.|

|Very interesting topic! Not very far from my home. Just a little question: if I'm taking a metal detector and go arround Fagaras, can I found anything from any mod f the world wars? I'm sure there was at least a battle between 2 and 3 october 1916. Can I find anything in the area? Thank you!|
