    Hi Nick,
    The one on the right is a certificate given by a Burgermeister to a couple on the birth of their first child, not a direct Mutterkreuz item but I think it falls very nicely into the category.
    The second is a propaganda poster, not sure exactly what the translation is, but the woman wears a stylized MK at her throat.
    I forgot one other item from my group photo. My copy of 'Mutter Berta' with a great illustration on the front......
    Pics below......

    Hi Adrian, I have a literal translation which doesn't flow very well, but gets you alittle closer. "The mothers heart is the nicest unverlierbarste place and the son even if he already wears gray hairs knows their is only one in the world."
