    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

    It must be an overwhelming sensation to be in the same room with these Vets.

    Fascinating thread. I am glad that the West German Govt made accommodation for these vets to wear their medals with pride and acknowledge their experiences and achievements. It would have been only too easy to sweep it all under the rug with the introduction of new orders and decorations.

    It was Larry , i have attended quite a few OdR meetings although not for some time as the numbers of RKT's who attend now is very small and as i say many have now joined the Grosse Armee . This meeting attracted much publicity as it was the 50th and was heavily covered by the German media and the usual concoction of Rent a mob demonsrators , as we moved from the Hotel to the meeting Hall we had a funny episode when former Das Reich Pionier RKT Siegfried Brosow had a little word with some of the demonstrators !!
