    Another successful trip Dim !! Another 9 guys found i think there will be many more in this area , it is showing what heavy fighting took place in the trenches in these fields and how many guys are KIA and MIA there.

    The tag looks very corroded,do you think you have enough to identify the Russian officer from the mess tin and the Estonian Legion soldier ?

    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

    Hard to imagine now the death and carnage in those fields and forests but no doubt many more KIA's/ MIA's are still there from both sides.

    Guys, Finally I got permission from Estonian Goverment, and from Deutsche Volksbund. The permission allow to dig practically everywhere, and I will come on 26 of June to decide with local official authorities, and then get a permit from local land owners, and probably will spent a couple of days in research.For sure I will bring the camera with. So permission is valid untill the end of october.
    Regards,
    Dimas
