    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

    Marti has deactivated the belt with ammo, all the ammo was SB and prewar, as normally All the Flandern was equipped with that type of ammo.
    Next day was absolutely cold, windy and rainy. We just found two of the bodies in the Norge positions, that is approx 20 meters in the forest, from the place where we last year found soviet soldiers with a cigarette case. And again this tyme Juri was a part of our company. Under the tourist road was found one ammo mag for DP 27, near the K98, approx a two meters a soviet helmet and a MG box with 300 ammo in it, I deactivate it, and now it's a beautyful example in the office. On the picture you can see Marti being found a mortar damaged helmet ( I didn't have another picture with a second helmet, that was a one part only, looks like a big power has separted the helmet to a parts)
    The owners looks like in a 3 meters from a helmets, also very damaged. One has a steel dogtag which is rust trough and impossible to read. The docs was stolen or missed, only the unfilled diary ( he taked off the leafs from it ). The marriage ring is a cheap cooper made. Another one has no tunic at all, and only has trench art ring in the pocket "Nord- front 1944", and can opener. No papers and no dog tag. Has a soviet waist belt as a trousers suspender ( but who know, may be a soviet soldier with just a trophee in the pocket) Condition of the metal is very bad. I've just give th ring to the museum, due I didn't want to save it in our trench art collection, by ethical reasons ( i did not want to mix collection with the items I found with body)
