    Hi Kris.

    Yes it was Boston where I went, in the city center the day before the bombings and I watched the marathon in the suburbs, crazy shit and so sad to see the news which probably included people I saw running being injured.

    It is a nice gift and I am part way through polishing it as it was all tarnished when I got it.
    Regards,

    Indeed. Glad you got back safe Jerry, That is a fine looking piece of trench art. How do you go about cleaning yours sympathetically? I have some nice pieces including one by the Chinese Labour Corps which I want to clean up a bit but am terrified of rubbing off some of the engraving
