    Kris - very impressive , almost looks like the eagle used by the Sports Verein - what does the dedication read?

    When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
    An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
    An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling

    Horst,

    This is a screamer, and I just listed the description so will cut and paste the dedication for you.

    Ehrenpreis
    des Reichssportfuehrers
    von Tschammer und Osten
    reichsoeffener
    moderner fuenfkampf
    Wuensdorf, 18-21 Juli 1939

    Kris -- Guess I was right in my assumption that it was a Reichs Sportverein Eagle -
    The dedication reads(more or less):
    Honorary Prize dedicated by the Reichs Sport Leader Von Tschammer & Osten, Reichs Open Modern 5 bout, Wuensdorf & the date.

    The eagle does represent the emblem for the DRL(Deutschen Reichbundes fur Leibesubung) of which Von Tschammer & Osten was the Reichssportfuhrer - the DRL was established Jan 1936, headquartered in Berlin "Haus des Deutschen Sports" .
    The "Modern Funfkampf" consisted of: 5000m horse riding with hurdles
    Fencing
    Shooting with a pistol at 25m
    Swimming 300m
    Track 4000m run
