The documents were stored in a firearm magazine and buried.

Adomas Gedvilas, a former partisan messenger, thinks that the unit's partisans' passports and other important documents were hidden in the magazine.

The documents will be handed over to archivists.

Around 50,000 Lithuanians, also known as "Forest Brothers", took part in the anti-Soviet resistance movement in post-war Lithuania.

More than 21,000 partisans, their family members and supporters were killed during the postwar rule of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin.
