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
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
what were they thinking if that goes ahead it is just going to attract a load of nutjobs neo nazis
Sad that one cannot set up a museum without it becoming a shrine to Neo-Nazis.
I think that it is perfectly acceptable for a museum to display flags, uniforms and weapons, however when you are offering them out for people to wear and take holiday snaps, you are bound to attract attention. It is my belief that these items should be for displayed for observation, and not for playing dress ups, due to the serious and sombre nature of the items themselves.
agreed joshua but the problem with the world today is that it is a free world ish and that there would be no way of stopping the neo nazis from making it into a shrine i wish there was a way that people could one day remember the war dead as heros and that there would be no neo nazis
Thanks for showing, a very important site of historic interest for a number of very different reasons.
