Here's another picture with more immediacy taken this morning, in the swirling mists and rains on the last day of March 2014.

Here's one of the objects I dug up.
I wondered what it was, but a flick through a book on Japanese military equipment showed me that it was the top of a Japanese military water bottle. The cork had rotted away leaving the metal parts. Here's a photograph of what it would have looked like.
Sometimes we find things we can not identify. I found the metal strap below with two "D" loops and I have no idea what it is - I am hoping that somebody might recognize it and let me know through these pages what it is. Here's the mystery object.
It was a 50 cent coin bearing the date 1891.
