You can see the shells and other metal objects in front of it. There are some places on Rybachiy, where the ground is completely covered by shells, splinters, bent parts of firearms, pierced helmets (both Russian and nazi)...





And the marks of bombs and shells on the rocks... It's about 3-4 meters between the marks. It was Hell during the war, I think.

I had the privilege to visit St. Petersburg (still Leningrad at the time) in 1985 while I was in college. While I had an understanding of how severe the conditions were during the war, I didn't really fully comprehend the severity until we visited the one of the mass grave memorials just on the edge of town. To think of your Great Uncle fighting in those conditions for 3 years is mind boggling.


I need to get back and ride in your great country.


Thanks for the report. Please post more!
