    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

    Great position to dig on,
    Those battledamaged items are harder to find here on the ETO
    The german troops would be more likely surender to brittish or american forces than the russian troops?
    Would love to do a dig on the eastern front, but the finacial part is a bummer...
    But hey as long as there are guy's like you, doing the good work I can still enjoy the pictures, thanks a lot for sharing Paul.

    Cheers,
    Steven
