A group of soldiers has travelled to France to search for a dozen bugles they buried in the early stages of World War II.
The location of the bugles is still a mystery
Men from the King's Shropshire Light Infantry hid the brass instruments in a French garden just before the hurried evacuation from Dunkirk in 1940.
More than 60 years later the soldiers and a team of experts have travelled back to the house, in the northern French village of Genay, to find the regimental treasures.
Working on information supplied by Tim Ellis, the soldier who buried the bugles, the group is using metal detectors to try and find them.
The house was the former headquarters of the British army.
Major Jeremy York, from the King's Shropshire Light Infantry, said the instruments are an important part of their history.
"The bugle has become symbolic of the regiment," he said.
"It was important that it didn't get into the wrong hands, particularly the enemy."
The owner of the house Eric Desmons said he does not mind the group digging up his garden.
"I find it very interesting, these people are passionate about history, and that's why I let them into my garden like this."
But, despite an extensive search of the garden, the location of the bugles is still a mystery.
