    Two brothers were involved in "marking" and Making these items in the early 80's. One brother owned Hill 60, and the other had Hill 62. Neither of them spoke to each other, as there was a family feud. The brother who "owned" hill 60 died a few years ago.. I haven't been back for a number of years, but I can assure you back in the early 80's, these were being knocked up and sold to the "tourist". at rather a lot of money I may add
    Is that the Big fat bloke John or is he the one still alive ??

    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

    He sounded like a colorful character.
