    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

    As I've take contact with local Cultural Inspector he gave me positiv answer about the Bluehills, from his words, they don't know exactly what can be counted as a memorial zone, and make all the 3 hills as a memorial zone

    I will travel to Narva in 26 day, I got an invitation from VBund, there will be reburrial of the soldiers found last year, include ours, and I will take contact with Thomas Schock's boss, who visit Narva that days.

    The last instantion- to contact with local officials in Sinimae. The Robocop says that all the land in around is full of vegetables on it, due of that we planning to make a big trip to that area in august. The same on Grenadier Hoeche, we can't dig nw the most sweet positions of 11/23, but there small area for 9/24, which come from the down positions to the hills, and probably some parts of "De ruiter" 49 units too there.
    Take a look the map, here you will see clear remains of position on the field, there is sandy ground, and you can easily recognize trench lines, and craters. But from the surface look at the place you'll never see them

    That is the place where: approx 500 meters at 2 o'clock cross monument; left 10 o'clock 200 meters soviet cemetry monument, 7,30 o'clock- crossroad near the old cemetry- 200 meters
