    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

    Can you post it in the main forum so all the members can see how well the interior paint was preserved.

    At last, the weather seems to be improving over in Narva. Its finally rose above freezing, thought we would need power tools for digging next month.

    Hiya Alex, Dimas and Pol and fellow members of Das Auvere Schutzengraben Taucher Abteilung, looking forward to getting back to the hills and the sacks with the best possible group of people I could wish to go digging with.
    Got a really good feeling about this trip that we`re gonna` find some nice ostfront items and have a lovely week in the countryside and in those amazing forests, covered in mud and maybe a few mosquitos, but also living life to the full too!! See you all soon boys. regards, Gary.
