    Very interesting, i guess we will never know how many unmarked graves there are, but thanks to you and your freinds at least some will be put to rest where the sacrifice will be recognised.

    regards to you and your friends for giving up your time.

    I have a lot of respect for giving up your time for what can only be described in most peoples eyes as quite a grim task, but its good that over 60 years on they arent being forgotton and left near or where the fell. Its good that you are encouraging your children because someone will have to carry on your valuable work. On an other note, I seen quite a sickening video a while ago of Russian, what I would call "grave robbers" digging up graves and simply tossing the skulls and other bones of their fallen countrymen to the side like they didnt matter. I dont get why and how someone could do that. I really hope that they get caught and punished.
