    I was surfing around the net last night and I came across this photo of an MG gun crew they would appear to be set up on a river bank over looking the remnents of a bombed out bridge. The part I find of particular intrest is the castle or fortress that is prominent in the back ground does anyone have any thoughts on were this picture may have been taken

    The photo dates from September 1941 and was taken in Narva , Estonia, it shows the Russian fortress of Ivangorod on the east bank of the River Narva.

    Just out of shot on the west bank where the troops are is the Fortress of Hermannsburg,

    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
