    The tag is from an Observation unit.
    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

    Excellent finds '121'! They were deep indeed but I don't suppose the ploughing helps that other than to break the surface for you. Do my eyes deceive me or is that musket shot in there too?

    Thanks for posting.

    Such a very interesting thread.

    I have been following it with interest. You certainly found some good places to dig. Just fantastic. Such a very interesting bit of history - to be able to search where huge amounts of soldiers threw away items prior to disappear into the vast steppes of Russia. I have been to Narva several times, but seen/found nothing like this. Please keep up the good work and keep posting here, as I certainly will "tune in" and continue to follow your thread with interest.

    Disregard the negative comments, as the posters obviously have no clue as to the nature of your digging efforts at all. I thought the mod response very restrained in view of the nature of the harsh comments and as these comments pop up now and again. How tedious. Good work and well said on behalf of the mods.

    Paul - I blame you! Just now ordered Kurowskis book Look forward to reading it.

    Below a few items from Narva. Moisin Nagant Bayonet, PAK & Sthurmovik shells.

    Here are more photos related to post #18 in this thread on 2nd page.

    All guns thrown in nearest river it is tradition
    Too bad, if there is a problem with having the guns.

    Some of them looks to be able to clean up nice and become great wallhangers.

    Especially the MG, STG and the handgun.

    It looks like a FN GP35 or what was it?

    Excellent finds from the flea market. Did it all cost much money?

    I will have to go back to the first page and read through the entire thread, but I wanted to say I just stumbled upon your ebay store and I like that horse shoe! I am an equestrian myself, so that caught my eye!

    Edit: ok, I read through the entire thread, Wow! enthralling photos. I have to ask, do you have any "in field" photos of that horse shoe you have listed??
