My uncle is 81 and not driving.
I live 10 km away.
It doesen't seem much,but you can make 5 km in 1 hour here in Buc.
After 4 hours in trafic you need a day off.
I'll solve the problem as soon as I can.

I understand all that. I really do. This is precisely one of the reasons why I would like you to hurry up. Many of the children of former veterans from Great War 1914-1918 who keopt the photos and other memorabilia about their fathers are today in their 80s and slowly passing away. Most of their children have no genuie interest in their grandparents stories and often throw away boxes with old diaries, memoires, photos, medals or sell them to some irresponsible collectors.

I have seen here plenty of such cases when their children have simply thrown away boxes with old photographs, diaries, medals and memoires and I always regret not being more passionate in preventing that.. :blink: So I am always afraid that any further delay might cause us never to read his story (memoires) of Ioan Pacurariu and for us it will be simply just another interesting story lost and another piece of Romanian history forgotten.

I agree 100%.

Only that my uncle has no children.

So no one to throw away anything!

I'm making now a promise;

Till the end of the month,I'll solve the problem.

S*rew the medals - unless of course if he was awarded the Golden Bravery Medal (Goldene Tapferkeitsmedaille), the highest Austro-Hungarian bravery decoration. :P What about his unpublished memoires, C-2? :lol: :D
