    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

    Great pieces Paul, thanks for posting. Can you read the markings clearly enough to figure out where it was manufactured? That would be frosting on the cake!

    Very cool- I have a couple of complete SlfZF1a sights in great condition, but I always wanted a mount and especially the armour plate through which they projected; nice find!
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
