PARKER'S CROSSROADS

This roadsign dating back to the 1930's had been used by a GI to make a nice roof over his foxhole.

It was discovered untouched on the spot some 50 years later. There are still some schrapnels damages digdug5.JPGronce17.jpgronce14.jpgronce15.jpgon.Photo0005.jpgdigdug3.JPGdigdug4.JPGdigdug2.JPGPhoto0007.jpgdigdug1.JPG
