    Romanian dog tag is very interesting . Very good condition for zinc.
    I've never seen before the inscription on the Romanian dog tag like this :
    MATR 240 CTG 36
    DIV 20 INF

    SOL
    VLAD IOAN
    The owner of the dog tag was one of Romania's 20 Infantry Division. This division was completely surrounded and destroyed at Stalingrad.

    I already found 6 dog tags from this division in the ravine next to my University

    And today, I visited the ravine ... over there are a lot of snow, very cold (the temperature at - 20 degrees in progress)
    I'm waiting for the real spring, when it will be warm and dry
    Well, I agree to weather become warm ...

    Come to Cyprus in summer when temperature reaches 44-45 Celsius and you will feel very lucky in Russia in -20c

    You think your weather surprise to me? Ha ha ha No guys!
    Last summer at Stalingrad was the temperature 40 ... 45 degrees Celsius and this temperature was in the morning I looked at the thermometer.
    And I worked in this hot weather.
    Last time I've been watching the anomalous weather in Russia. I remember what the weather was in my childhood...

    These were also the temperatures faced by the Germans during the Summer of 1942 during the fighting in southern Russia and the advance to Stalingrad so not uncommon !!

    Many people in Russia died last year due to the high temperatures , my friends in Stalingrad hope it will be cooler this year !!

    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
