    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

    Many thanks for your efforts in finding a photograph of Major Gottfried Geissler wearing his peaked cap. I look forward to seeing this. I am attaching a photograph of his Knights Cross , Its a well worn L/12 . I hope it comes out ok.

    Kind regards,

    Ambrose

    Thanks Jay. I was lucky to get it . A named piece is always more interesting as unfortunately the story is very often lost in time. This forum really helps keep it together,
    Regards,

    Ambrose

    Very nice Cross, Ambrose, you're very lucky to have it.

    I still have the original Detlev's page with photo, if you need. But I dont' know if it possible to publish a photo marked Detlev Niemann for copyryght questions.

    Now we wait for the owner of the awards, soldbuch etc. !
