    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

    Stalingradshaddow, Yes it is so, good places are dug out, Lithuanian guys come to Kurland for digging, too many diggers, there are about 5000 diggers in Latvia.

    Yes, for many people it is only business, now as good WW2 and WW1 places are heavily dug out, black diggers can't earn money there, so they found new way of business, they started to dig medieval cemeteries, they totally destroy our history, police can't do anything against them because we have stupid laws. Black diggers don't care about any laws and cultural and historical aspects, they just dig to have money, no thinking about future. What You said is perfectly described situation with these old cemeteries.

    About dead soldiers, I never take anything from them, many diggers also do so and they give bones with personal items to us, we make rebury, we also work with Volksbund and Russian government. We are collecting soldiers who were dug out by unofficial diggers in whole country and we use our fuel bought for our earned money.

    I dig only for fun and only WW1 and WW2 in weekends, for me it is hobby, I sell some items which I don't need in collection, but I have such need, because in other way I wouldn't have money for fuel, one liter cost's here 2$, but minimal salary is 400$ and the way to Kurland for me is about 100-150 kilometers one way. I spend on fuel much more than I can earn from my dug out items.

    Regards,
    Andris

    Many thanks for creating this thread and sharing it with us. I've just spent some time looking through the pics with amazement : for some reason I found the hotel key-tag from Le Touquet particularly poignant......
