    Welcome to the forum Bill.

    Unique for sure. Not something I can help with but maybe someone here will know.

    It's summer and vacation season so be patient on this post as well as your others.

    Regards,

    It looks like something from my research to be from Norte Dame to honor the soldiers

    I'm sure the folks from France will chime in on this and give a better review. Mine was just a quick search

    Great detective work there Phil...a thread to now pull on...

    ...but to take it too the next level. Probably not Notre Dame but maybe (?) a bombed out church is France? Couldn't see someone ripping this off a wall of a standing church but maybe one that was in ruin....??? Conjecture of course. But that is the fun part of a mystery.

    But some morose individuals did. Be it for profit or for some type of ideology. Either way it is still disturbing.
