    Default last 3 days in Walhalla

    Hello friends, after last 3 days another 113 german soldiers return from: Valhalla:most of these soldiers died from wounds in hospital, except those who died during battle.We got the list from Germany with names, but not complete. Most of dog tags was readable, but some completly destroyed. Made so lot of pics during work (little chaotic........-sorry for that). So there is some. P.S.-still must go back to that village are-about 30 similar graves must be found-in bushes, forest, near at country roads etc, anyway we will try-one by one, just takes so lot of time, and very often unsuccessful

    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

    You are doing a really great and honorable thing. Spending your time, effort and money to give these Soldiers a proper and decent place to rest.

    Fallen Soldiers from all sides, allied or axis deserve this. They really do. Again, great job
