    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

    Gerrman Stalingrad vets Helmut Cronenbroeck and Friedrich " Fred " Boening on the Mamayev Kurgan on Victory Day.

    Helmut was with 9 Staffel Jagdgeschwader 3 "Udet" and was part of the Platzschutzstaffel at Pitomnik airfield , their unit of ME 109's was the air protection unit for the Airfield. Fred was Luftwaffe Flak and was a prisoner at Stalingrad for many years after his capture , unfortunately Fred has now passed on.

    Awesome pictures Paul , great history , i definitly have this tour in mind , an amazeing place i will get to visit some time soon . One of the things i realy admire with the Russian people is the respect and honour they show there fallen , there statues and monuments are stunning , the shear size of Mamayev Kurgan just blows me away something i would love to see , keep up the great thread , cheers Raymond

    Here an ignorant question my friend. Does anyone actually pick up and try to take a helmet or a jerrican? Do people and tourists actually respect the monuments? thanks, Raul.

    The answer to both questions is yes , people will pick up any debris that is found on the Battlefield i doubt the jerrycan will still be there , but also the monuments are very much respected , however whether anyone would be so unscrupulous to take a Helmet from one of the memorials i'd like to think not but ............ there are always people who would do that i'm afraid !!!

    regards

    Paul
