    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Thanks Paul,

    Just for info the photo of the trees and fields beyond is taken from near the monument looking towards the Oder.

    Well managed an hour around the edges of the ploughed field you can see in the pretty country photo whilst the German section of the party popped into Seelow for a coffee muttering something about crazy Englander. Anyway only found some shrapnel including a very nice threaded shell nose cone which I kept some bone shards which I left and also two quite complete stick grenades which I marked, left and notified the police of. The shell nose cone has cleaned up nicely and I am planning on mounting it on a wooden plinth with location found on it. Should look good next to my Ost front collection.

    Great photos Robin, wish I could have been there with you! I guess this was in East Germany following the war, hence the large Russian memorial. No doubt since the Russian's suffered horrific losses taking this position. Thanks for posting.

    Great thread, that's one of my "musts" before I croak.

    Am I right in thinking that entry to the actual Heights is strictly verboten, because of the amount of ordnance still around?
    I'm sure I read that one once?

    Didnt seem to be any restrictions at all regarding access. No fences, signs etc. I understand the whole area is viewed as a war grave by the authorities so no digging. But I was walking around within 50 m of the main road and was passed twice by the police without them giving me a second look.

    In answer to another post all the graves surrounding the memorial are of Russians. Didnt see any German graves
