    That's great mate, looks like a good reunion there. Looking forward to the rest of your pics I wonder if it is the same box I sent it out in, I can't remember at all what it looked like. Has anyone replaced it along the way? It must have about a kilo of tape on it by now lol....

    Don't think it's the same box, the one I got from Denmark is still with me. Ironically, the box I sent to Russia contained another helmet when I got it.

    So i dropped my other project today and took the helmet on a little tour today My SATNAV bluntly refused to take us to the Victory Park. I will try and go next weekend. Anyway we went to a WW1 memorial where some Soldiers from WW2 also have been "dumped" as my wife said. It's not marked as such and are not on the info board at the entrance. It's just how it is. At another cemetery there is an "unknown soldiers" memorial. There General Krasnov and some of his men have been "dumped". These places are only known through collectors "folklore" so to speak. Knowledge orally handed down through the years.

    I made a video as well and there's a link to it at the bottom after the pics

    WW1 memorial. My daughter have been at more memorials than many people

    Very nice video and pics mate It's a shame that small monument is forgotten in a corner of the park there, but it looks like somebody takes care of it at least.

    Love the pics in front of the church.

    Thanks Andy. I will try and make it to Victory Park. It's the place where Napoleon was standing and waiting to handed the key to the gates of Moscow. Needless to say he never got them LOL

    Yes there are signs of someone putting flowers and cleaning up a bit too at the memorial.

    Cheers
