    Scout it seems that you are familiar with the area. Did you go for digging or just for holidays?
    He is a scout... He surely is familiar with any terrain!

    Hey mate! First of all greetings to Cyprus!!! You had an outstanding trip there!!! It can't get any better to plan a trip at an intresting place that is related with our hobby and above all have a specialist to guide you and share the stories of each location with you!!! A trip to remember for a life!!! I was most amazed by the look of the woods!!!! I was almost able to see zimmerit covered Tigers moving among the trees with camouflaged grenadiers around and a black uniformed tank commander looking with his binoculars from the roof opening!!! Very vivid photographs!!!! And of course perfect souvenirs from your trip both self found and bought from the Antique shop!!! Don_Kihotis7 you are a very lucky man and Paul E you are a very kind man!
    Hi Mike i am happy that you enjoyed my trip. I really hope to go back soon and also travel to Kurland as well.
    I have sent a few photos to Otto Carius who fought in the battle of Tannenberg line and he was astonished. He sent me a letter expressing how surprised and happy he was.

    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

    Yeah the guys are great. Really helpful and pleasant to hang out with. Especially for beers at Scotland Yard Pub in Tallinn It would be better if Paul could reply to an email without a reminder, but i still like him anyway

    You had a nice find Raymond. The background in your picture looks so familiar. The landscapes there are so beautiful, i wish Cyprus was like that too.
    I wanted desperately to find a SS dog tag but i wasn't that lucky. I hope next time though
