    Great piece of family history mate !!
    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 )

    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

    The family told me to tske it apart and display it as I liked...but I like the way the man himself has donit, it'd be ashame to alter it.....he is still alive and has written his wartime memoirs for the family

    Very good family relic with a known history. I visited the area a few time when I lived in Holland, a very evocative place, especially the Memorial site and the cemetery at Oosterbeek.
