I sent 20 euro!
Also to Herr Willhelm Lubbecke I sent enough USD that I got $10 back!
Here is my sign copy of the Belfast Diaries that My friend and fellow WRF member has sent me. I am sorry the pictures are not very good. My camera is giving me fits tonight.
I feel very fortunate to have this first edition signed by him and his mates. Steve is a great guy and the book is well worth reading.
Thanks Steve for writing your book.
I specialize in M1 carbines and Lugers.
John: Thanks for posting your copy!
It is indeed worth reading. I'm almost finished with it and it is really good. Very interesting!
Well Herr Carius didn't disappoint!
His book was signed with a nice dedication "With best wishes for the future. A small memory from the dinosaur of the Tiger Pharmacy" Still a comedian at 91 years of age gawd bless'im!
He also signed the book twice, again on the inner photo page.
I also received the nicely signed photo and a copy of the 'From The Front" newspaper article announcing his RK mit eichenlaub award.
Glenn: That's really great! He's definitely a very generous man. Thanks for showing.
Now that his book is returned I look forward to actually reading it. When it first arrived from Amazon I had it in the post to Herr Carius the very next day!
The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )
1st July 1916
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
