    That's very hard to believe. I don't buy it.

    It was well documented. The bog prevented oxidation and kept the tank pristine...

    Well, I guess if a bog can preserve a body why not a tank.

    Amazing story and true about the bog.

    It would be a shame if the relics that are discovered were not restored...what a legacy for generations to see and respect.

    This one from Northern Russia (2005) amazed me, imagine having a walk in the woods...

    Yes, imagine walking in the woods in the Philippines and finding an gleaming Japanese Type 97-kai complete with a very old, but very much alive, Japanese soldier!

    US fighter plane recovered from lake after 65 years



    An F6F-3 Hellcat was just recovered from the bottom of Lake Michigan near Waukegan Harbor/Illinois after almost 65 years.
    The pilot couldn't manage to slow down the plane while landing and ended up in the lake on January 5, 1945. The pilot, today 89-years-old Walter Elcock, could be saved. His grandson pushed the recovering of the aircraft.

    Jeez! Aside the most tragic part of this...isn't it staggering in which condition the body is? Do you know when exactly these photos were taken?

    Apart from the poor bastard losing his lower legs.

    Probably been in a peat bog or similar.

    Because of the density and acidity of the soil and water there is little opportunity for the organisms which aid decomposition to thrive, so a body can exist relatively intact for a very long time. It's what provided us with a lot of ancient bodies relatively intact.

    Yup. Than think of it being extremely cold in late autumn through spring...
