    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

    Super pictures Paul

    Quick question, I visited Talinn a few years ago, did the old town escape much of the battle or it was rebuilt very well ?

    Tallinn and the old town survived very well Nick , not too much damage , the heaviest bombing was in March 1944 but the old town escaped !!

    The Russian's bombed areas of it. I take it that was March '44 Paul? I'm glad it got away fairly lightly. I would say it's the most friendly & ornate city i've been to. Stewy
