Fascinating information, and poignant images.
It would be nice to see these chaps, from either side, laid to rest and hopefully their relatives if any can be found, to be informed.
From an archaeological point of view, if these remains were removed, (in a dignified and respectful way), the tunnels could be cleared of ordnance and mapped for future generations to study. Also, relics, day to day items and weapons used by the soldiers could be preserved, and placed in small museums to illustrate the horrors and futility of war?
This may well upset vet's, I have no wish to do that, but after all as servicemen and ladies, we all joined in order protect our countries and to prevent or stop war? Not many youngsters these days even know about WW2 let alone WW1, and what so many brave men and women from all countries involved fought for? They fought for the freedom which we and our children enjoy today.
I do hope there are still some Fathers, Grandfathers, Mothers, and Grandmothers who will try and explain this to the young ones so that they don't get entrapped by political claptrap dished out by people that don't even join the battles which are going on as I write this?
Hope I've not upset anyone here, I just think it's wrong to turn a blind eye to the people who have given their lives in order that we may enjoy a relatively free life.
I would be interested to hear other peoples comments on this delicate subject?
My best regards,
