    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

    Hello Sebastien

    This is my first message and would like to ask:

    During your digs, you find coins, where these dropped in battle or simply buried with other items after the battles and approx how many bodies have you dug up and reburied?

    I love your photos, as you can imagine, we do not have these experiences in Australia.

    Regards

    Scotty

    Sebastien!

    Excellent work and even more finds to delight your followers with, well done sir! I'm glad to see you staying away from larger unexploded ordnance too. Keep going my friend.

    Paul E, I think you hit on most of the campaigns my German half of the family were involved in. I wish I could read the papers (BRILLIANT FIND!), a lot better myself. Well done to you also!

    Martyn.

    Hello Scotty,
    coins that I found buried with other items after the battles and approx.
    Alas, I can not say exactly how many bodies I dug up and buried. In all my life I've dug up about 15 German soldiers and about 5 Soviet soldiers. A few years ago I took part in the official search expeditions.
    Australia is a good country. My friend wants to emigrate from Russia to Australia.

    Today, I again dug in a ravine that next to the University.
    Again Finds not much, but I was able to dig up a German helmet (M-35) , a cigarette-holder and a German gas mask in a bad condition.
