    Very nice Andreas !!
    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

    Hi Sebastien

    I donŽt know. His dogtag says "1 kav ers abt 11" and some other papers says
    "he.pi.batl.742". IŽve read somewhere that this batallion was at some point in Poland. I read in your thread that "2 kav ers abt 11" was in Stalingrad and I know from my grandfathers biography that he escaped in a boat from Russia in May - 45.
    Do you know where 1. kav where stationed or where I can find out?

    I have the eagle for the cap somewhere. The cap is not in very good condition.
