Title: Sad Hill Cemetery 2.0
Post by: oigres17 on April 11, 2014, 03:19:54 AM
Hi! My name is Sergio Garcia. Iīm from Spain, and my English is just a bit poor.. so, please forgive my possible mistakes.
I tell you... me, and two other friends have just founded an association in Burgos trying to re-make entirely the Sad Hill cemetery... before 2016, because in this year will happen the 50th anniversary of the film and we dream of the possibility of playing a concert or a theater act about the G&B&U in a "remastered Sad Hill cemetery"

We have the permission of the local authorities... and we are preparing a diploma proclaiming honorary partner of the association to: Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach, Carla Leone, Metallica, Ennio Morricone and Quentin Tarantino...

If only one if this celebrities will answer us... yeah... could be that our dream start to be possible...

But we know that itīs really difficult...

This is our dogma: "in this world there are two kind of people, my friend. Those who dream and those who sleep. WE DREAM"

I donīt know if I can link our association website, I will wait for the answer... I donīt wanna be a spammer without this permission!

Saludos a todos desde Burgos.

Lets hope "remastered" means  restored, and not improved.  8)

If only Tuco and Blondie hadn't found those bags of gold coins, we could dig them up now and have the funding for this project. $200,000 worth of gold in the 1860's has to be worth many many millions today ;)

This is such a cool project. I love the aerial photo of the "gravesite."

Do I understand the "sponsor a grave" thing correctly? I send you the money, and you put up a grave with my name on it? Or any name I choose? What if I'd like to sponsor several graves--you know, just as a kindly gesture  >:D toward several of my favorite board members, say? And how do we know what names have already been taken? Arch Stanton is already spoken for--anyone else?

About 2016: how do you feel about volunteers arriving to help? Are there lodgings and transportation available for such people? Are you putting together some kind of vacation package for Leone nuts? What kind of beer is available in Burgos, anyway? And how are the flies there?

Also, have you guys thought about maintenance after everything gets rebuilt?

Good luck with this. Thanks for bringing it to our attention, and please keep us informed of developments.

Maybe Tuco and Blondie missed some of the bags! They could still be there!! We could go and find out!!!

Hi again...
In this moment, there are only two graves... the next week, we would return to the cementery to erect a few graves, with our names, or nick... We will show pictures.
After 2016... we donīt know. Our idea is that local autorithies will mantein the point, but it will depend of the successfull of this uthopic propose...
Spanish beer itīs fine, for sure!

I forgot...
We want to send a "classic" mail to Mrs Carla Leone. I mean, not e-mail... Do you remember? Not lot time ago, You opened your classic mailbox and, surprise new letter!
This is the idea, we want to send a real diploma, not a jpg image.
So, anyone can suggest us the best option to send to Mrs Leone a letter? The adress, of course...
Gracias!

This is a great idea, Sergio.  Can't you use some of your golf earnings to help fund?

I've always thought that we here in the USA should try to rebuild the missing part of the arch in Utah used in Once Upon a Time in the West.

Please, its only a question not a nitpick....

but should the date naming convention be in the American format opposed to the European way??

i.e. February 3, 1862 not 3 February 1862....or did America adopt a change at the turning of the last century.

Post by: Novecento on September 25, 2015, 01:45:12 PM
I think back then the date format was still flexible. People still say "the fourth of July" in the "European" style for American Independence Day on July 4th for example...

Hatton Garden Raider's Loot Buried In Cemetery

The jewel thief wrote to Sky News claiming police were ignoring his offer to show them where he hid his share of the haul.

11:24, UK, Friday 16 October 2015


By Martin Brunt, Crime Correspondent

One of the Hatton Garden raiders has been taken from prison under armed guard to show detectives where he buried his share of the loot in a cemetery.

Danny Jones, 58, had complained in a letter to Sky News that his offer to reveal the hiding place had been ignored by Scotland Yard.

At midday on Thursday an armed convoy, with a police helicopter flying above it, took him from Belmarsh prison to a north London cemetery when he showed them where  to dig.


Jones has admitted his part in the Ģ20m heist

He was taken straight back to jail, as a team of a dozen officers in forensic suites began an excavation while 10 more stood guard.

Jones'  solicitor was present to witness the operation and police took photographs which may form part of the evidence against him.

Visitors to the cemetery were allowed to lay flowers on nearby graves but were kept away from the dig which lasted around four hours.

I understand that stolen properly was recovered and taken away in several boxes.

In a letter from his prison cell before the excavation, Jones told me: "I've instructed my solicitor to tell the police Flying Squad that I want to give back my share of the Hatton Garden burglary. They said it's in motion.

"I now understand that the police said that the prison Belmarsh won't release me to the police. What a load of bull.

"The police can't want it back, as I'm the only person in the world to know where it is deep down. I want to do the right thing and give it back."

He added: "If I don't get the chance to go out under armed escort, I hope hope some poor sod who's having it hard out there with his or her family find the lot and have a nice life, as you never know, Martin, people do find things, don't they?"

Jones is one of four men who have pleaded guilty to conspiracy to rob the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit centre in London over the Easter weekend. Five others pleaded not guilty and are to stand trial next month.

A gang were let into the premises, then drilled through the vault wall before ransacking more than 70 boxes of jewellery, gems and cash.

Police originally said Ģ10m worth of property had been stolen, then revised the figure to Ģ20m.

In a court hearing last week prosecutor Philip Evans said police had just recovered a significant amount of property, but there were still many millions missing.

If he manages to get out of prison alive......he could always sell the movie rights  :D

Looks like they are restoring it, I wonder if they just covered it over after shooting or if that is just nature reclaiming the site.
