For those interested in W.W.I...

a friend of mine associated with the Army museum at Carlisle says that
researchers in Germany have located the lost records of the Imperial
Prussian Army from W.W.I. Seems they were loaded into a train, run into
an old unused tunnel in a mountain somewhere and the entrances were
dynamited. First word is much is in good condition, I bet researchers
are drooling. Should be a lot of Prussian Aviation records in there too.
Many of the Prussian Jasta's records have never been found.

This would be newsworthy; has anyone seen something about this? I'd be interested in reading more about it.

Wow, hard to believe things could get 'lost' in Europe. Population density is somewhat higher than on this continent. You'd think someone would have tripped over everything by now.

Googling indicates most Prussian military records were destroyed in '45.

So, are we looking at a "Friend of a Friend" Urban Legend here?

That's my first thought,but I'd love to find otherwise.
