WWII Motocycle Buried in the Forest

Uhh buddy, have you seen some of the pictures of stuff that’s been dug up? Peat is incredibly good at preserving things, as are some of the other types of mud and soils across Europe. I remember being shocked when the dead body of a German soldier was dug up earlier last year (in the Seelow Heights I believe) and his bones were bleached white, his helmet still had snow paint, and his wedding band had very little discoloration.

On top of this tanks are still found in bogs and other such areas all the time and they still run fine after some minor work. You’d be surprised how well preserved a lot of battlefield equipment is. Europe is a whole lot different than the Pacific theatre as there’s much less heat and moisture, and being trapped underground makes it a whole lot less prone to oxidization unlike weapons which are found lodged in a tree or under a rock.
