    Default Stuff Still Out There..Waiting To Be Rescued

    Hello Gents, Last July, I received a call from a realtor friend of mine, said he had a client that was moving and had some militaria she wanted to find a good home for.
    The next morning, a half mile from my home this is one of the Items that was in the garage. A complete WWI foot locker, boy was I surprised when I opened it.

    What a fantastic piece of history
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    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
