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
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
Long thread but I enjoyed the entire post...
These excavations were again in late November.
The temperature was quite warm for this month of the year. Generally the weather is very strange, global warming is probably true ...
I found the Soviet helmet. This helmet (steel helmet model 1939) is an early model with three rivets attaching liner.
