Here is a shot of the top of the head stone showing the horn of Vaclav Nusatko.

Vaclav was born in 1888 and passed from this earth on 1914 at the tender age of 26.

I searched the cemetery records and did not score a hit on Vaclav Nusatko, I tried many variations with the same result.

I am wondering if this horn has been on this marker since 1914, I imagine the rope would have disintegrated if not made from hemp, and the pine needles had to have been placed around the horn within the last few years.

The horn was used to communicate to the soldiers and also to rally the troops as well as provide entertainment.
