    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

    Gents..For reference....I have noticed only one award missing from this excellent list, the "Lappland Shield" although awarded (at least on paper)...it is a known 57er in collecting circles despite it not being on the official allowed awards list.....the example I show is believed to be of St u L manufacture.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Thanks! I was also surprised to see the Anti-Partisan badge listed - it has always been my understanding that it was virtually banned from wear.
