Late 2014 kurland recovery of mass graves

Late 2014 Kurland trip to search for Russian soldiers lost during the battles of Kurland in 1944/45 and hastily buried in mass graves our job was to find and recover them which we successfully achieved and found the remains of many lost Russian soldiers unfortunately many of the remains still had visible battle wounds and the items which killed them still in situ which made it a very sombre experience the remains we found will be re buried in a ceremony in Riga next year.
