    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

    Hi, Ostlanddigger,
    I pickelhaube you found is really great i would love to have found it
    even in that condition, They all tell a story. I have a pickelhaube
    helmet i have had it for quite some time now, it is a very small fitting helmet, but is in good condition for the age. I thought you might like to see it so i have put it on. I need the chinstrap and cockades but will only put originals on it. It is marked 98B 1905,
    and 7 0 on the rear peak, .
    dave.
