    Hi Gurov,

    I thought it looked like a hard day to excavate properly and if they were hit by Artillery and Katyushas !!!! Very difficult !!

    You can only do the best you can for them in the circumstances,

    regards

    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

    So Guys, finally, we've met with Gurov Mr Schock yesterday, and all remains must be reburried at summer 2009, I'am happy. The way from Narva to Tallin takes approx 5 hours due of a very-very bad weather and snow, but we met what we want- the soldiers now will be burried properly. As I can dispatch- we will continue our thread till the end and after we can share that info with others.
    As I've seen some letters from mr Shock, a couple of peoples try to call the VB after the dog tags was displayed on the WA forum and that peoples are described as " eastern black diggers", I don't want to share that info till the mission will be accomplished

    Hey Dim,

    I'm very glad that that the guys we found will receive a proper burial next summer.

    Us guys from the UK want to be there when this happens , can you pm me with the details you have from Herr Schock.

    Who are these people who have contacted the VB after seeing the details of the dog tags ?

    Best regards my friend
