    Sorry - but I have no info. I have always assumed they took it away to a landfill. I'll look into it.

    Great them Colin. Notice how many actually had no shoes on. I remember me dad telling me he used to go to school with no shoes. That woulda been around the Second War too. Not that long ago.
