    Hi Martin, I have never heard of that story before?

    These items would fetch a huge amount of money on the open market.

    yes, I heard that story ; but it seems a "urban myth " to me ...
    I had one in my hands once, but it was a 19 th century French one.
    I believed we had one in the old Royal Military Museum, but I am not sure!
    The museum Nick recently showed some pictures from.
    Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!

    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

    That is not a Field Marshal baton but it is THE Reich's Marshal baton of Hermann Goering, conqueror of Poland and France.
