    1st July 1916

    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

    It's amazing what good condition it's in; must have been mostly in the mud or the water is particularly anaerobic for some reason. Wild...

    But geez:

    "It was part of a group of 16 IL-2s that were part of a raid on a German airfield at Luostari. 25 Me-109's rose to intercept them and the resulting engagement cost the Russians 11 planes and the Germans 23."

    LOL 23/25 '109s lost to a group of Il-2s? Only in Soviet records LOL Or if this author mistakenly included the German planes on the ground, which isn't what the statement suggests.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
