WW2 Watch Makes It's Way Home Metal Detecting

I was trying to use my metal detector the other day, with no luck. Even with the manual, I'm not very good at figuring it out. I went onto the (Friendly) Metal Detecting Forums for some advice. I then found this wonderful story from a military relic digger in the UK.  Not only did he find an amazing watch but he went on a quest to do ample research and make sure it got back to the family where it belonged. Talk about a good deed.  I'm in awe of him.  I don't even know his name, but he is from the Midlands, England, and this is his youtube channel. He has the upmost appreciation for veterans and I thank him for that.
