    I wonder if the old battle lines could be followed by using one of the Google programs,,,Earth maybe??

    The program Google Earth helps, and I use it. But there are no schemes location of military units ... only the relief ...

    This is a screenshot of the program with Google, we do not see bunkers in the gully, but they are there. Yesterday we dig out these items ...

    Great finds, Seastian.
    I like the scope and the oiler especially.
    Looks like the glass in the scope is still intact, but surely you cant look through it?

    Fantastic finds Seb. That is exactly how we use Google Earth here in the UK to find old military camps and such like. Fantastic sniper scope

    So it boils down to a lot of research,,, a long shot maybe but would it be worth searching out the local people who were alive back then and interview them?? assuming there are still some left, it's been a long time.

    This is a common tactic used by most diggers , it is surprising what the old folk can still remember of the fighting around their village etc !!

    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
