Bm145

Searched in vain on
20090508

But found one day later on
20090509

Almost one year later I will learn that the whitish rock behind this marker has a cross on it.  I discovered it on this page  of Robert  Darrieumerlou's site.

Luckily one of my own pictures showed that cross.

Move the cursor over the picture to see where the cross is. 
Apparently – I thought – an older delimitation-cross from a pre-numbering-era. But: ‘the Treaty’ stated that bm145 was a bordercross. Jacques Koleck got in april 2013 the brillant idea to undig that rock and discovered an engraved number on it:

So this rock is the original bm145!!! For Jacques, this discovery was understandably “un trčs grand plaisir “.
So I had to return for my own pictures:

Picture of the rock besides bm145 with a cross AND the number 145.

Thus: Jesús Murueta already knew of the number on the rock.

Approximatly 15 meters to the west of bm146 (the pillar in the background), there is a number 146 engraved in a rock.  It seems if only the number is engraved, no cross. Javier Martínez Ruiz (see Sources-in-person) sent me  in 2013 a couple of pictures from which this compilation is made.
So I had to return for my own pictures:

Interesting on this picture from bm146 from "The Murgoi-files": the referral in the text to the rock with the number 146, 10m to the west.
