    Hi Dan, fantastic notes. I'm with you, I wish I had a name with all my pieces, but I don't. Do you know if he survived the war?

    That would sound as if he was stationed in the Channel Islands or post-war POW booklet? do you know more about where he was stationed? very nice set indeed.

    715 Infanterie Div spent most of it's time on the Atlantic coast defences but did see combat in Italy in 1944/1945.
    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 )

    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
