    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 was able to read the French descriptions. I do hope the finds wind up in a museum and that they are properly preserved. NH

    Hi Neil Ever, Well, I am pretty sure they ended in some private collections and I am sure they will be preserved due to the historical and, not less, financial value of the finds. The site have a huge loads of photos, you may click on "acceuil" at the end of the page to be directed to the main menu. Then chose in the category "fouille" (Battlefield's archaeology) "premier conflit mondial" : WW1, "Second conflit mondial" : WW2.
