    Despite the skull being crushed, it should (assuming that the fragments haven't been lost), be possible to reconstruct it, and from that, reconstruct CB's face.

    I hope that this chap can be identified, and laid to rest alongside his comrades.

    Dave when I read that thread I wondered how earth he would be alive 200 years on? maybe holed up in some barn only coming out at night to find food/water..He would make some survival expert!!!. No but a very thread.would be interesting to find out more about CB.....Thanks for posting Terry.

    Amazing~~ Cheers to the archaeologists and their fine efforts. I hope they can locate a unit and name in their
    research. The fact he was buried face up with money in his pocket and arms across his belly...had to've been buried by his countrymen.
