Tobruk, Libya-- The remains of what seems to be a british soldier who died during WWII was found near the eastern city of Tobruk by a Libyan family.

The remains were found in Al-Ghaara area east of the Tobruk city on Sunday.

The family which found the remains informed the archeological office in Tobruk of the remains which sent experts to the place to investigate the case.

Ihab al-Misalati, of the archeological team, told the Solidarity news agency that the remains are believed to be of a British soldier who died during the Second World War.

The team also found with the remains old Egyptian currency carrying the name of the former King Farouq, a hand watch, a plastic box and an ink pen.

In the nearby area the research team also found four bullets, German medal and a Nazi cross.

Comment:
Very interesting discover. The testimony of Libyan and european history. A major country of History
Comment:
looking at these remains, I think that the white - red badge, can point a possibility of the Polish soldier who died at Tobruk in 1941. This should be more researched
