    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

    Isn't there a photo of him in the wehrpass?
    Ingrid....I did not get the wehrpass, and it seems it did not appear on E-Bay, either the vendor sold in his shop (he is a dealer) or kept it, I am trying to find out if it for sale, but have not had a reply as yet....
    Prost ! Steve.
