    The piece of FSJ Stahlhelm is a very significant find and piece of history , well done !!
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    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

    Excellent finds Sebastien ! Especially the 5 Panzer soldiers. It is good that they now rest in the cemetery
    with their comrades. The Feldwebel shoulder strap and Panzer skull emblems are great. I wonder how they
    all died? Were they shot, or from artillery explosion or maybe they starved and froze to death?? I guess these
    are things that we will never know. Thanks again for the excellent work that you do out on the steppe.

    Where do the remains you find end up Aundrey? Is there a cemetery in Volgograd for German remains or do the remains go back to Germany somehow?

    Good to know. Do you get to attend the ceremonies where the remains you find are interred?

    Never.

    I do not work in Volksbund. I just cooperate with some people from this organization here at Volgograd...

    Amazing thread and an amazing blog for all the years worth of reports, photos and detailed explanations and comparaison photos.
    I wish I could join in one of these digs and pass the day with you talking about your knowledge of the area.

    Please keep up the good work

    The PAB is a fairly early hollow FLL made in feinzink. Not a common find these days.
