    The Lochnagar Crater, is at La Boiselle, on the Somme in France and is privately owned by Richard Dunning, having been bought in 1978 to save at least one of the original 1 July 1916 Somme craters from being filled in and built upon by local farmers.

    It is where I "found" Pvt George Nugent 22nd Batt 3rd Tyneside Scottish in 1998

    In all honesty who actually would? Theres a lot of money sitting in that hole just waiting to be picked up, its a shame that people that know might just not tell other incase they might want to dig them up sometime in the future.

    Thanks

    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
