Is it a personal cross?
Posted by: Wrightdigger
Date: March 17, 2018 05:48AM
My friend found this melted bullet with a cross etched into it. He's thinking the CW soldier may have done this so he could be carrying a cross in his pocket. He believes this because it was found on a road with other CW finds. It was not a camp. Some have suggested it was a game piece. He believes that if that were the case he would have found more pieces there. He did not.

Does any one know the history of the daily life of a CW soldier? Or a reference to where we can find out more about this?

Thanks for any help.

Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.


John 15:12-15 NIV



Can you dig it?

But boy am I learning! Thanks for the advice, docholiday 232. I came across some personal letters that are especially moving!
