    What an incredible level of preservation of the wood and the artifacts!! Unfortunately hundreds of thousands of men are still under the earth of the Western Front who will have died in a similar way in many cases !

    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
