Us and them - and after all we’re only ordinary men. Me, and you - God only knows it’s not what we would choose to do. Forward he cried from the rear, and the front rank died, and the general sat and the lines on the map moved from side to side.

Dunno why i'm here agin but...well i got a mail regarding a "linkback" so i popped by and...
The lady and i still see eachother on a regular basis.
She's found and given me lots of other goodies such as mint mein kampf, dustcover and all, also the partybadges from both her father and mother has surfaced and just last weekend she had found a 1. edition "die neue reichskanzlei" by speer.
The red Adolf H. cigarettepicture book also showed up recently.
Lots of trophies from schorfheide, wild boar, deer like sikas and crowndeer, all mounted and with all data, year, section where it was shot, weight etc., on the back of mount.
A few speeches and some printed stuff.
Oh yeah and the "art-book" the green one but as theres alot of dedications and writing from family she still has contact to, back in germany, she feels she has to offer it to that family first!
If they reject i'll get that too.
This winter she gave me a xmas greeting from Göring!
Was a card he apparently had printed for xmas 1935 which was given to family and friends.
But yes, I know that you guys know she has had it all printed in order to fool some naive collector
One day i asked if there might be a flag among the stuff her mother left her but she knew there would be nothing like that as their "house flag" was cut up and sewn into dresses post war!
Jesper its good to hear from you again. Your meetings with this fantastic woman and the trophies she has bestowed upon you will far outweigh anyones collection that has not had personal contact with such a figure. Some of the collectors here can only dream about knowing the person who had owned a dagger or sword,, others have been fortunate to meet or also receive an item. Your friendship with this person is a total eclipse in collecting which leaves our mouths gaping in amazement! You are very fortunate to know this lady and we hope that it continues not for the sake of getting more stuff,,but the sake of the trust she has put in you and to be able to speak with you in that capacity. Its a Rare find for sure to find someone of this calibre who will talk about such dark times that most to this day are embarrassed to speak about. Your friendship with her is what is worth more than whats in your safe. Although what she gave you still is very cool!! Nice to hear your still in contact with her. keep us updated. Best regards Larry
