    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

    I think you are correct Stefan this looks more like a mess tin from a Soldier with the 20 Gebirgs Armee who was stationed in Norway but also fought in Karelia !!
