    Ade, did you see also in todays Daily Mirror the guy from the Peak District who collects live shells and has already had his hand blown off by a WW2 shell?

    I prefer to collect medals!

    Many people don't realise how many Waffen SS veterans settled in ans still live in the UK.

    I personally know ones from the LSSAH , Totenkopf , Polizei , Wiking , RFSS , Latvian and Estonian !!

    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

    It just goes to show that the SS were not all indoctrinated idealogists!

    Great story
