Investigation for lost keys

There are moments when our trips looks like  investigation than normal tourism. A story of Johny Walker is one of the most interesting at this time. He was an Australian POW who was imprisoned in Fort XV. During his stay he was preparing Whisky and apart from that he also made false keys to food storage. Before Australians were moved from Torun he hid keys in a hole near a window in  a Fort. 
After 70. years his grandson Peter came to Torun to see where John spent 5 years and also we tried to find  keys. After few hours of walking and searching we found wires which look like the faked keys. But even John isn't sure that the wires were the same like these during WWII. By the way this is another prove for us that a lot of issues aren't closed.

Probably parts of faked keys
