    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

    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...
    You know every spots I know Michel.
    We must have met in the pass.
    Are you sure it is Saumur I was told it was a Museum in Germany.
    My French family is from Saumur.
    Very nice Museum but I like the old location better.
    But where it is now is only 5 minutes walk from my Grandparents.
    My Uncle and my cousin did buy stuff there longtime ago.

    Yes It is in Saumur, because there was the problem of some munitions staying in the weapons and the army took the Panzers.
    Near Le Mans, there was a depot with tanks and guns, all is in Saumur also.

    No, it's a friend who gave me the pictures. Le mans is not in Normandy, so I never go in this time. It was out the town, "sortie"

    It was in the 70's, this tank is now restored, perhaps it 'll run in July(Not in Normandy..)
    But I see some tanks are mising in the museum, in the reserve?
