    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

    I have a photo of the guns at Longues Sur Mere from my trip, almost exactly the same picture but 40 years later. Very cool

    Did you see the horse in the cement of a perimeter MG pit? Made me laugh.
