    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    What a super grouping of artifacts Paul. Some of the ordinance is alittle scary looking. They probably scraped the explosives out with a pocket knife. Great photos thanks for posting.
