    Your right Chris , long ago , some of the richest modern familes in Normandy are the post war scrap men !!
    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 )

    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

    I ws told there is a German Panzer in the middle of the forest, just a mile from where I'll be living. It should still be there I understood, and Ive seen pictures of the wreck with children climbing on top of it.
    Its not burried or something, or hidden, just a wreck in the woods. But maybe its been towed away now, I dont know. But the other good news is the place was packed with Germans, so I hope there is still some bits left for me te dig up.

    Please remember digging in France is very restricted and has to be done legally !!

    Chris, I met Mme Morat in Trun when the Panzers where in this place. Now they are in the Saumur Museum. I have pictures of this old time. Except the Flak Panzer.
    Yes digging must be legally done, and the Gendarmerie knows the place.
    In this "village"there is some sellers of militaria...

    Of course, I have only 2 pictures of this time, in 1969. All is in Saumur

    I was very young and wanted to buy the Flak Panzer, Mme Morat said no, because one shell was in the gun.
