World War II in Europe ended in 1945, and when Charlie and I were stationed in Germany twelve years later, bullets, mortars, and other explosive devices were still scattered about. When I showed this photo to my boss, he said we shouldn’t have picked those things up. He was right, I lamented, and explained that we put them down very gently.
This blown up bunker was actually an underground hospital near Bitburg. Charlie and I let ourselves into it on a 20 ft. rope. We had flashlights so we wandered from room to room until we reached another entrance a half-mile away. Water was dripping everywhere and rusting medical equipment littered every room. It was really eerie and I had no inclination to collect any souvenirs in that place.
