if armchair experts find this thread disturbing..
then dont read it..SIMPLE..
its getting very tiresome when new members
come in all guns blazing with no knowledge
of diggers in question nor government policy
on repatriating their war dead..or lack of it in this case..
perhaps these aggrieved members should contact the relevant government of countries involved..
Some new photos today...
Great finds Andrey , have you started digging this year already ?
The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )
1st July 1916
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
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
I like the last two photos - a REAL Wehrmacht "Dog Tag" !
