    I tend not to dig on the Asiago plateau as digging there is forbidden by some communal laws.

    I toured the Dolomite region on motorcycle about 4 years ago, a very beautiful part of the world.

    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

    Looks in good condition too - Adrians do not take kindly to being exposed to the elements - I have found a couple, but never even worth picking up!

    Awesome finds! I'd like to see some of the helmets or bayonets cleaned up.
