    Another day of excavation.
    I and my friend dug up bunker.

    Our finds were modest ...

    I want to say that the air temperature was around -5 degrees Celsius (23 degrees Fahrenheit). There was no wind and in the ravine was quite comfortable.

    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

    Those badges did not look like much coming out of the ground, but they sure cleaned up nicely! I had to do a double take at that pot you found...it looked like a Fallschirmjager helmet at first!

    I took me three days to go through this whole thread....glad I have finally caught up!
